We Remember

WEBB, Roy Keith (Reverend)

May 15, 1925 — January 5, 2023

Roy Webb went peacefully into the presence of His Lord and Saviour, Jesus, on January 5, 2023, at the age of 97 years.  Roy was born in England on May 15, 1925.  When he was 1 year old, his mother and stepfather immigrated to Canada along with his older brother, Derek.  They settled in Pontiac, Saskatchewan, and over a ten-year span lived in numerous locations throughout Saskatchewan.  They moved to Kelowna, BC, in 1936 with Roy and Derek and all their earthly possessions in the back of a Studebaker pickup.   After his mother was miraculously healed, the family came to Christ and attended Evangel in Kelowna.

Roy served in the armed forces during WWII.   In 1946, he attended Bible College in Victoria where he met the love of his life, Lois Rathjen.   After graduation from Bible College in 1949, he moved to Campbell River to assist in the church there.   On May 5, 1950, Roy and Lois were united in marriage and together they had three children: Keith, Kathy, and Laurel.

In 1952, they began pastoral ministry with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.  Over the years he pastored in eight churches in British Columbia often as a bi-vocational pastor to support his young family including logging, mining, truck driving, and electrical work.

In 1990, Roy retired from fulltime ministry and in 1994 relocated to Armstrong where he and Lois assisted their son, Keith, as Seniors’ Pastors.   In 2004, they moved to Kelowna and into Gordon Park Manor where he once again attended Evangel, coming full circle.  In April 2021, he became a resident at the Village of Mill Creek and lived there until his death.

He is survived by his loving wife of 72 years, Lois; his son, Keith Webb (Debbie); his daughter, Laurel Brannon (Jon); his grandchildren, Cindy Larden and her two children, Daniel and Jacob; Randy Urbanowski (Christine) and their two children, Vivienne and Nicolas; Ronee Adams (Paul), and their three children, Katelyn, Jacob, and Andrew; Jeff Webb (Megan) and their three children, Liam, Sawyer, and Isla; and many nieces and nephews and extended family. He is predeceased by his brother, Derek; his sister, Sylvia; and his daughter, Kathy.

A family-only graveside service was held on Friday, January 13, 2023.  A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, April 14, 2023, at 11:00 AM in Evangel Church, 3261 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, BC.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada, Living Memorial Fund.

    Auntie Lois, Keith and Debbie, Laurie and Jon, and all of your families, our heartfelt condolences at Uncle Roy’s passing. We pray the Lord’s comfort and strength to sustain you in the days ahead and that fond memories of Uncle Roy and the lasting legacy he left will warm your hearts. I read this quote this morning and thought I’d pass it on to you: “Only one life, ’twill soon be past; only what’s done for Christ will last.”
    With love and prayers, Shirley (Webb) and Don Siemens

  • Joan Webb says:

    To: Auntie Lomie, Keith & Debbie, Laurie, Jon and all family members. It is with sadness and joy that I send this message. Sadness that Uncle Roy has passed but great joy that he is now in the presence of Jesus with those gone before. There will be times of tears and he will be missed. There are so many memories that will come flooding in but I know God will comfort you in those times. He will already have heard the words, “welcome thou good and faithful servant. Enter into your rest”.

    My deepest condolences to Lois and her family, Pastor and Mrs. Webb were our spiritual leaders at Duncan Pentecostal church for many years and were exceptional at their vocation, no two people could have shown more compassion, care, love and dedication to their “flock”. I often still think on times past spent with Pastor Webb and Lois and it always puts a smile on my face. Pastor and Mrs. Webb always seemed to know how to handle any problem that arose with patience and grace no matter what the situation. I took over as Sunday School Superintendent at the church for a few years and my second week doing Open Session before all the kids went downstairs to their classes, I was leading the children in some songs when I tripped over a microphone cable and went flying off the stage into an aisle and hit with a huge THUD. The organ and piano stopped and all the children abruptly stopped singing and stood up to look at me laying face down in the aisle so I quickly jumped up despite just breaking a rib, turned around, hopped up back on the stage and told the kids to start the song from the top, which they did, but then I heard Mrs. Webb off to the side as she started playing the organ again, start going, “psss, psss” and tossing her head to the side, indicating her urgent desire to speak to me, so I waltzed on over, leaned over the organ, at which time with a sweet smile and sympathetic look she whispered into my ear, “Dear, when you fell off the stage you split your skirt clear up the back, the only thing holding it on is your belt”. We just smiled at each other a few seconds and then I simply answered, “Of course it is”, and then I walked back and stood behind the wooden pulpit that fortunately wrapped around three sides of me. When we were done with the song I sent the children to their classrooms but I saw Pastor Webb walking up the aisle towards me, taking off his suit jacket and trying to minimize the smile on his face as he reached me and handed me his jacket to wrap around my waist. I said to him, “So there’s no chance God threw me a bone this morning and blinded y’all from seeing my keister whilst I ungracefully took that swan dive off the stage and then had to climb back up on it”?! He just smiled at me sweetly and said, “I’m afraid not dear”. No matter what the problem Pastor and Mrs. Webb could always laugh with you when need be so you never felt embarrassed when sharing one of your less than stellar moments in life with them, I always loved that about them, they just weren’t our spiritual leaders, they always went above and beyond so they were also our good friends who we could laugh with as well. Love you Lois, and I’ll see both you and Roy again in heaven one day.
    God bless.
