Cpl. David Webb died over the weekend, he was 55.
Webb, a native of Gainsville, Florida, was the department’s Resource Officer at the Brenham Junior High School, and was very popular with the students, faculty and fellow officers.
He had been with the Brenham Department for five years after leaving the Prairie View Police Department.
Brenham P.D.’s Captain of Patrol Operations, Trey Gully, issued the following statement Monday morning:
"We are very saddened by the passing of Cpl. David Webb and we are struggling through this as any other family would be. David was and will always remain our “brother in blue”. For the five years that David was in our lives, he constantly displayed compassion, love, forgiveness, and mentorship through his actions. We all hear stories about how great someone was once they have passed on, but I say from the deepest place in my soul that David was one of the most amazing men I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with. David had this natural gleam about him and could bring a smile into any room or situation. His “good mornings” to us were so heartfelt and honest. He worked and built his reputation on his Christian values and would share when asked. His patience was second to none, especially with his “little angels”, his Jr. High students. He knew a way to love everyone The Brenham police department, The Brenham Independent School District, and the entire community of Brenham have lost a true hero and an amazing mentor. We will forever cherish the time we had with David, best known as “Mr. Webb”. We say to Mr. Webb, “we love you, and we miss you. We will hold the line from here. Until we see you again, God Bless you, you’ve earned your rest”. We call your “10-7, 10-42” (out of service, off duty)…."
Funeral services for Corporal David Webb are pending, and will be announced as soon as they are finalized.
