Family of tree trimmer who died on job remembers their loved one

GARDNER, Kan. - The family of a tree trimmer who died on the job is struggling with their loss.

Larry Webb of Olathe fell 60 feet Friday morning while on a job in Gardner, Kan. Police ruled it an accident.

His mother Janice Hurley and brother say he was an experienced tree trimmer.

"He was a wonderful son, he was caring, very helpful," she said. "He'd give you the shirt off his back."

"Every time I was with my brother, it was a good time," his brother Terry Webber said.

Family members say Webber loved to fish, go to concerts and cheer on the Chiefs.

Several siblings from out of state are still traveling to Kansas to be with family.
