Dan L. Webber
Dan (Danny) Webber passed away peacefully at home on July 24, 2017. He was 76 years young. Born in Grand Coulee in 1940, Dan was a graduate of West Valley High School, and excelled at sports. He had extended Education at Eastern Washington University and Whitworth College. His long, successful banking career took him many places – Long Beach WA, Vancouver WA, Bellingham WA, Seattle WA, Baker City OR and Salem OR.
In the Seattle area Dan was Regional Manager of Pacific First Bank. He was President of the Bank of the Pacific in Long Beach WA, and Pioneer Bank In Oregon. Dan was on the Board of Directors for the Oregon League of Financial Institutions, where he was recognized for outstanding leadership. Upon returning to Spokane, Dan was the CEO of State Highway Employees Credit Union (now Numerica) until his retirement in 2005. Paramount to Dan was the success of the financial institutions he worked for, and the caring, advancement and genuine success of his associates. As quoted by a coworker, “A fine person and a great leader”.
Dan was a caring husband and father and is survived by his loving wife, Marilyn, of 41 years, and children Brenda (Mike) Durkin, Charlie (Mitzi) Fraley, Allen (Sheila) Fraley, and Chris (Gretchen) Webber.
Grandchildren include Ben Fraley, Zach Fraley, Ingrid Webber, Carly (Ben) Bonora, Holly Sotelo, Jenna (Brent) McCaffery, Terry Durkin, and Katy Durkin.
Great grandchildren include Emma Lu and Ruby Bonora, Hazel and William Sotelo, and Kayana and Rylan McCaffery.
Dan was preceded in death by his mother, Lila Webber, and father, Roy Webber, both of Spokane.
Dan was an athlete and avid sports fan. There wasn’t a sports trivia question he couldn’t answer. He enjoyed participating in sports including many Bloomsday walks, and was health conscious and fit throughout his life. He and Marilyn enjoyed winter retreats to Lake Havasu City, AZ and they made many friends there. Dan and Marilyn graciously welcomed visits from family and friends.
Dan’s quick wit and wisdom will be sorely missed and remembered by those who knew him. He was a true gentleman and his genuine kindness and his generosity extended to others will be truly missed.
His family is grateful to the Staff At Love at Home Senior Care, for their kind, compassionate, and professional care. There are not enough words that can convey our gratitude.
Private family services will be held at Riverside Cemetery on July 29, 2017. "The "twinkle" in Dan's eyes reflected his genuine honesty and caring of others. You are so loved." Rest in peace honey, until we meet again, your loving wife. Messages of encouragement and remembrances may be left through Hennessey at www.hennesseyfuneral homes.com.
