Wilbur “Webb” Churchill Rundlett III, a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, passed away after a brief illness at the age of 76 on July 19, 2023. Webb was born on May 19, 1947, to Wilbur C. Rundlett Jr. and Hannah J. Rundlett. Married to the late Vikki Rundlett (Kaplan), he is survived by his son Jonathan Rundlett and wife Melanie; son Christopher; daughter Laurie Geary, her husband Patrick; grandson Owen Geary; as well as his sister Hannah J. Rundlett and her family.
Born in Beverly, MA, Webb and Vikki started their life together in Middleton, MA before building their dream home in West Boxford, MA. While living in Middleton, Webb joined the Navy and did a tour in Vietnam. Even though it was the cause of his illness, he said he would do it all over again. He was a true American Patriot.
While raising his family, Webb purchased a Pepperidge Farm franchise, delivering bread to local stores. This allowed him to be home with his family in the afternoons. Summers were spent making memories on the family boat. Once his children grew older, Webb made a major career change and worked at Moynihan Lumber in Beverly, designing kitchens. He was excellent at his craft and created dream spaces for those in the local area. He retired from there in 2012. He was a woodworker in his spare time, crafting pieces of furniture for his home and for others and enjoyed tying his own flies for fly fishing.
Webb coached numerous youth basketball and softball teams. He led his teams to many victories and was always a positive influence on the athletes that he coached - mainly his own children. He continued his love of youth sports, cheering on his grandson Owen at his sporting events and giving him the same advice, he gave many years ago to his own players.
Webb and Vikki enjoyed their lives in the great outdoors, fly fishing and setting up their camper in Maine with their three Golden Retrievers. After Vikki’s passing, Webb purchased land in their favorite area of Maine. His dream was to one day turn it into a peaceful getaway for his family to enjoy for years to come. Throughout the recent years, he enjoyed camping with family, ATVing on the trails and sitting around the campfire.
Webb was known for his big heart. He always put others first and went out of his way to make sure everyone was taken care of. He had a huge love for his family and friends. He was a quiet man but always had a warm smile and sense of humor. He will be sorely missed by all. He is once again together with his love, Vikki. May we all find peace and comfort in his memories.
