Thomas Webb

of Bryant, AR

August 29, 1949 - September 21, 2022

Thomas C. Webb, 73, of Bryant, Arkansas died on September 21, 2022. He was born August 29, 1949 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas to the late Benjamin and Mary Cook Webb.

Thomas grew up in Gould, Arkansas. Thomas went on to study mathematics and coaching at The University of Arkansas at Monticello. He earned a master's degree at University of Oklahoma. He was drafted by baseball teams out of college, to play pro baseball, but turned those down to pursue his teaching career. He taught math for over 30 years in Arkansas, spending many years in the Little Rock School District and in the Bryant District. Most of all, Thomas was proud of his time spent coaching girl's basketball, leading his 1983 team to a win in the overall state tournament. Coaching was definitely something he took much pride in, his team was more like family to him. Thomas was also very proud of the years he spent teaching algebra with his Little Rock F.R.O.G.S. team.

Thomas is preceded in death by his parents and stepson, Eric Webster. He is survived by his beloved wife of 17 years, Jennifer Webb; son, Trent Webb; two daughters, Mellissa Epperson and Christie Hale; one grandchild, Catherine Epperson and many friends.

Visitation will be held at Roller-Alcoa Funeral Home (6700 Alcoa Rd., Benton, Ar. 72015) on Thursday, September 29, 2022 from 6:00p.m. to 8:00p.m.

As I read the heart felt posts of all my Lady Hornet teammates, I am flooded with great memories of fun times, hard work, dedication and amazing wins. I was lucky enough to have you as a coach, mentor and friend from 7th -12th grade. I was also blessed to be able to keep in touch through Christmas cards each year. I thank you for teaching us about teamwork—“There is no I in TEAM”—sacrifice and accountability. These traits have served me well in every area of life. Thank you for pushing us past our limits to achieve our goals. You are one of a kind and I am grateful to your family for sharing you with us and to you for putting up with all our craziness! What a fun time we had as Lady Hornets!! ❤️🏀
Love you!! Gari Mills Rucker #53 Class of 84

You came to Bryant my Senior year. I'll never forget you saying, "if you are a Senior and you don't start, you won't stay. " You worked our tails off. Conditioning us for Basketball and Life. Thank you for pushing us to be our best! Wish I could have said goodbye, but I will see you in Heaven. My thoughts and prayers for your family 🙏❤️. Robin

Coach Webb mainly helped us, through basketball, realize our strenghts and each others strengths. I would have never ended up being a physical education/classroom teacher if I had not had Coach Web instill the love of fitness and teaching in me. I'm very thankful for him.
