George Mizelle Webb

Our precious Pawpaw, Daddy, and Mom’s lifetime sweetheart, George Mizelle Webb, went to be with Jesus on February 16, 2024. For months, George was surrounded by his three children that he is incredibly proud of – son, George Kevin Webb and wife, Claudia, daughter, Kristi Webb Haney Emery, all of Coppell, TX, daughter, Kelli Webb Lloyd, and his favorite son-in-law, Joe, of Scottsdale, AZ; and his wife of 66 years, Valerie Harris Webb, of Bossier City, LA, who was constantly at the side of her ”brown-eyed handsome man.”

 

Pawpaw cherished and loved his six special grandchildren – Lindsay Webb Zindel, and husband, Nick, of Argyle, TX, Landon Kevin Webb and wife, Kerri, of Lantana, TX, George Dylan Webb and wife, Laura, of Dallas, TX, Joseph Sanford Lloyd, of Scottsdale, AZ, John Kodros and special friend, Dusty Hill, of Dallas, TX, Julianne Kodros Harris and husband, Troy, of Noblesville, IN.

 

Pawpaw had ten great grandchildren: Laine Zindel, Shephard Zindel, Beau Zindel, Liv Zindel, Kennedy Webb, Audrey Webb, Nolan Webb, Rose Webb, who will be having a sibling in July, Hayden Harris and Ivy Harris.

 

George is also survived by his brother-in-law, Anthony Pittari of Metairie, LA, and numerous nieces and nephews that he loved so much.

 

George was preceded in death by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Mizelle (Viola Kennedy) Webb; brother, William Lamar "Bud" Webb; sister, Margaret Pittari; and son-in-law, Michael Baskett Haney.

 

George was born February 23, 1936, in Monroe, LA. He was a 1954 graduate of Fair Park High School and attended Centenary College. George enjoyed many trips with his lunch bunch and Friday night dinner friends from Fair Park.

 

After ten years with Schlumberger, George began his career with Allstate at the Sears store. George had a strong work ethic, which he passed along to his children. Later, George opened his own Allstate Agency and was with Allstate for 37 years. During his time with Allstate, George was an excellent agent who befriended his customers and enjoyed those friendships throughout his life. George was blessed with good health for most of his life. 

 

George was a former member of the Petroleum Club, a former usher and member of the Vestry at St. Matthias Episcopal Church, and a member of the Krewe of Thoth for over 15 years, riding in Mardi Gras Parades in New Orleans with his son, Kevin, brother-in-law, Tony, and nephews. George looked forward to his annual trip to Las Vegas with his “adopted son” Hugh Knotts and “the boys.” 

 

George enjoyed music of all kinds – especially country, fishing on Toledo Bend, deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, and coaching his son’s sports when he was younger. He was known as a master of the grill to his neighbors, friends, and family, as ribs were his specialty! George was an avid sports fan – he loved all LSU sports, the New Orleans Saints, and the Dallas Cowboys. George especially loved baseball, and in later years, golf - supporting his grandson, Joseph. George and Joseph spent years vacationing on the beach in Panama City Beach, Florida, each year taking their annual beach walk picture.

 

George was a wonderful husband, and amazing father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. George had many names - Papa George by the neighborhood children in Stonebridge and their “candy man,” Coach Webb (during Kevin’s baseball years), and the “donut man” at the Skybox in Fair Grounds Field. Friendships to George were meant for life, and he treasured both old and new. 

 

Visitation for George will be held Friday, February 23, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., at Rose-Neath Southside Chapel. A Celebration of Life will be held immediately following, with his nephew, William Douglas Webb officiating.

 

Honoring the family as pallbearers will be Joe Lloyd, Joseph Lloyd, Landon Webb, Dylan Webb, John Kodros, Brad (Moe) Webb, Keith Smith, Stephen Brown, and Nick Zindel.

 

Honorary pallbearers will be Hugh Knotts, John Harris, Forrest Raburn, Jim Plumb, Jay Burks, Robert Frealy, Charlie Haffey, Chuck Massey, and Dr. Scott Harter.

 

Our family would like to thank special neighbors Bob and Kelly Bryson, Scott and Connie Miller, and Lt. Colonel Matt and Jessica Guasco, who treated us like family. We love them!
