Dinzel Eugene Webb, age 67, of Russellville, passed away Tuesday, November 24, 2020.
Dinzel was born October 22, 1953, in Dumas, Texas, son of Calvin Eugene and Eupha Dell (Gillentine) Webb.
On May 27, 1977, Dinzel was united in marriage to Diane Kay Marriott at Gravois Mills Baptist Church.
Dinzel gave his heart to Jesus at a young age and believed God had called him to ministry of some kind. He devoted his life to serving the Lord Jesus Christ by teaching Sunday School, leading the music, driving the church bus, witnessing and ministering to folks in various ways.
In January of 1982, he was ordained as a Deacon at Gravois Mills Baptist Church, serving there for 7 years. In 1988, he knew God was calling him to preach the gospel. After being licensed and ordained in 1989 he served as Pastor at First Baptist Church, Macks Creek, First Baptist Church, Stover and Russellville Baptist Church.
He also served as Interim Pastor at Edmonson Baptist Church, Solid Rock Church, Boonville and First Baptist Church, Sunrise Beach. During his ministry he, sometimes with his family, was privileged to visit Belarus, Russia, Romania, and El Salvador where he preached God’s Word, ministered to people, and made lifelong friends. Dinzel and his wife, Diane, hosted and ministered to international students through the Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Lincoln University in Jefferson City.
He also participated in summer mission trips with the Russellville Baptist Church youth and leaders as a part of World Changers, Sports Crusaders and 3MT, helping people in local communities. On Tuesdays, without fail before Covid, you could find him guitar in hand with the Preschoolers at the Russellville Elementary.
Dinzel was a loving husband, father, and grandpa who spent as much time as possible with his family. One of the many gifts that he passed along to his sons, friends and numerous children was the love of music. He encouraged his sons in their musical pursuits and set an example by playing along with them as they grew and developed their talents. He was known for buying harmonicas for his grandchildren as well as other children in his life.
Dinzel is survived by his wife of 43 years, Diane; two sons, Travis Webb and wife Ashley of Holden, MO, Derek Webb and wife Gretchen of Lancaster, PA; four grandchildren: Kallen, Kenna, Elsie and Noella Webb; four sisters: Audine McBeth and husband Dennis of Winters, TX; Rena Webb of St. Joseph, MO; Sharla Whitsitt and husband John of Kansas City, MO; and Gaylena Teckemeyer and husband Roy of Slater, MO; along with several nephews, nieces, other relatives and friends.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Evan Doran Webb and his sisters Delda Fay Webb and Sarah Ann Wilson.
Visitation will be 4-7 p.m. Thursday, December 3, 2020, at Russellville Baptist Church.
Funeral services will be announced at a late time.
