Dale Eric Webster


Dale Eric Webster, 69, of Council Grove, passed away Monday, June 12, 2023 surrounded by

friends and family. He was born on October 2, 1953, in Salina, Kansas to Ed and Hazel

(Greenfield) Webster.

On October 08, 1993, he was united in marriage to Darla (Scott) Coones in Pratt, Kansas. Dale

retired as an engineer from Union Pacific Railroad in 2015, but had no trouble keeping busy. He

loved spending time with his friends and family, fishing with his buddies, camping at the

Council Grove Lake and working at their store in Council Grove. Dale was authentically and

wholeheartedly there for those in his life and truly enjoyed helping others.

Dale was strong willed, ornery and a bit stubborn at times, but also had an enormous heart and

a wonderful sense of humor. He was generous, brave, and loved his people fiercely. He was full

to the brim with knowledge gained through all of his life experiences: train engineer, fisherman,

mechanic, father, friend, mentor and hero.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his sister, and his best canine companion Buster. He is

survived and missed deeply by his loving wife Darla of 29 years; twin sons, Justin Webster of

Omaha, NE; Jason (Jeri) Webster of Richmond, MO; stepchildren: Mandi Anderson of Wichita,

KS; Jamie (Ashley) Coones of Manhattan, KS. Dale will forever be cherished and remembered

by his 6 grandchildren: Ryan, Aubrey, Ethan, Collin, Dylan, and Finn; 2 great-grandchildren:

Dusty and Mason; sister: Connie Stewart; brother-n-law: Greg (Denise) Scott, best friends:

Tracy Chadd and Mark Shirley, as well as many beloved cousins, nieces, nephews, and dear


A celebration of life will be held July 14th & 15th at Council Grove Lake. Family will be camping

at Canning Creek in group site 1, pod 3. We will be sharing our memories of Dale. We welcome

anyone who would like to share theirs or pay last respects.
