Obituary for WEBSTER L. REID

Webster Linsburgh Reid was born on May 13, 1929 to the late Joseph Murray Reid and Florence M. (Rawlings) Reid, in Calvert County, Maryland. Webster departed this life at Georgetown University Hospital, Washington D.C. on January 17, 2017.

Webster attended Mt. Hope United Methodist Church with his sister Marie (Reid) Kent. She cared for her brothers, sister and other family members for a good portion of her life, because they had challenges of their own; making sure they had what they needed to function and live a pleasant and enjoyable life until she was no longer able to care for them.

Webster resided at the ARC of Southern Maryland Group Homes in Leonardtown, Maryland. There is so much that can be said about Webster. Webster was a very happy gentleman, he loved to dance and sing (Blueberry Hill). His favorite singers were Sam Cook and Fats Domino. He loved to go shopping he wanted everything in the store it didn't matter whether it was for a man or a woman. He loved to talk, you may not have always understood what he was saying, but you kind of got the idea. Webster didn't always know your real name but he had a nickname for everyone.

He would always tell the staff "I AIN'T OLD, I'M YOUNG". Webster's favorite food was fried chicken he would suck the bone clean, for someone with no teeth he could eat anything. He loved to play bingo you had to play his card for him, but when you won he was the first one to jump up and get the prize whether it was your card or his. Webster's favorite colors were red and burgundy, I guess that's why he liked the Redskins. His favorite number was 8; if you asked him how old he was he would say 8, if you asked him what time is it, he would say 8 o'clock.

Webster loved Christmas he would start talking about Santa as early as June; he wasn't hard to shop for because he would ask for the same things every year, Watch, Walkman, Wallet and batteries. Webster went into the hospital on Christmas Eve and did not get a chance to open his presents. Webster's caregiver Rhonda Holt was so very grateful for the Ripple Center who called her to ask if she would bring Webster to the Christmas Party on December 16th; he got a chance to see and take a picture with Santa and even got a gift. He talked about it for a week.

At The ARC of Southern Maryland Group Homes since 1994, Webster met a lot of people they all cared and loved him. Cathy Dickerson worked with Webster for 22 years. Since day one Rhonda Holt ("nickname Big Feet") and Sharon Milburn have worked with Webster for 17 years, he was a part of their family. His roommate Bill Ford who lived with him since April 1997 was his best friend, they attended Trinity Lutheran Church together almost every Sunday for Sunday School and Mass for 15 years.

Bill would always lookout for his "Buddy" Webster no matter where they would go. Webster attended the Adult Day Care Center 5 days a week and would go 7 days if you let him. He would look out the window for 2 hours waiting for the bus to come every morning, that's all he talked about was the bus driver (David). Webster had a special staff person at the center name Gladys ("nickname Bucket") she always looked out for Webster and if anyone messed with him he would go tell "Bucket" on them and she would take care of it.

"Webster has touched so many lives and will be truly missed" Webster leaves to cherish his memories, one sister Nina Reid, one sister-in-law Helen Ray and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Webster was preceded in death by his parents, his sisters Georgia Moten, Hilda Wallace, Marie Kent, and Edythe Chew, his brothers Joseph "Evan" Reid, Wilson Ray and Johnnie Moten.
