Craig Thomas Webber, 29, of Lusby, MD was born on November 27, 1985, in Jacksonville, North Carolina. He lived his life with many adventures, though at times there were some misadventures. He was a protector and jokester to his older sister, Andrea Katherine and younger brother, Aaron Matthew Webber. He was the captain of his “Papa” Rotella’s boat at an early age, learning everything he could about being a fisherman. This love of the water brought Craig to pursue a career in the Navy in July 2004. What Craig learned of the water in the Navy was not compared to the riches he acquired in meeting the love of his life, Rose Mendoza. Craig married his “Rose” on March 16, 2007.
Craig dived into a new life with Rose. They learned and played golf and traveled to many places such as Hawaii and Japan among family and created a beautiful, lighted path in their happy life, formulating many friends across the globe along the way. Craig left the Navy in July 2008 after serving honorably for four years. His love of the water and having learned all its secrets, Craig continued this pursuit and enrolled in underwater welding school in Seattle, Washington. He graduated, and with tenacity that Craig could only do when he set his mind to it, worked as an off-shore worker in New Iberia, Louisiana. Craig’s plans to happily retire with a family in Myrtle Beach fishing and golfing with Rose was not meant to be because he was taken from this world and set on a different chart on the ocean on February 20, 2015.
Craig will be missed as a protector and big brother to Aaron Webber, an obnoxious brother and jokester to his sister Andrea Webber, a smiling and happy son to his proud parents Paula and Thomas Webber, a fisherman and captain to his “Papa” and Grandma Colleen, a grandson and boxer to his Grandma Webber, a Uncle to his little Sarah Anne, and most of all to his beautiful wife Rose Webber. This short sermon is but a miniscule reminder of the wealth of light and love and beautiful memories he graced with his brief presence on this earth.
Family will receive friends on Friday, March 6, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at the Rausch Funeral Home, 20 American Lane, Lusby, MD 20657. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2015 at 11:15 a.m. in the Rausch Funeral Home, Lusby, MD. Interment will be private. After the funeral service, a brunch will be hosted in his memory by Paula and Thomas Webber at their residence in Lusby, MD.
