Hugh was born on December 26, 1927, to Mallie B. and Eliza Jane Jones Webb in Berrien County. He was one of six children. Eventually, Hugh and his family moved to Tifton where he met the love of his life. Hugh married Katherine Lindsey on June 28, 1952. Together they built a wonderful life and went on to have five sons; Bill, David, Mally, John, and Gene Webb. What started out as a family of two, multiplied into a family of fifty-eight.
Hugh was an active member of Salem Baptist Church and always took the time to tell others about his love for God. He was at church whenever the doors opened. He was an entrepreneur, owning various businesses in Tifton. In addition, he also served for sixteen years as a County Commissioner for Tift County. He was also a long-time farmer in Tift County and served many throughout the county with his U-Pick produce.
Hugh had many hobbies and interests. He loved spending time with his family every chance he got. He was an avid hunter and fisherman.
