As a young boy his Grandfather Nebeker had a profound effect on Web as he worked side by side with him on the family ranch in Bear Lake, UT. It was there that he developed a love for nature and the outdoors. After serving a mission in Eastern Canada, Web graduated with a degree in law from the University of Utah. He married his beautiful and gracious wife Ann Rogerson in the Salt Lake LDS temple. Together they raised four children. Web had a deep love and respect for his country and God. He worked for; a law firm, the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce, brokerage firms and nature preservation projects. He was active in many civic organizations throughout his life including; Salt Lake Republican County Chairman, Utah State Finance Chairman and attended two national political conventions. Web was an adventurer at heart and was especially drawn to Montana and the Madison River,
He is survived by: his wife Ann; four children; Web Adams the third, Mary Ann Fetzer, Liz Warner, Paul Milton Adams; 16 grandchildren; 12 great grandchildren; and brother Preston G. Adams. He was preceded in death by his parents; and four brothers. Passionate to the end Web lived each day to the fullest. He loved classical music of all kinds, Mozart was his favorite. He always found joy and beauty in the majesty of nature, the views from his back porch, flowers blooming in the desert, the dark clouds that rolled in with a storm, and swinging his nine iron. Most of all he found love and comfort from his wife of 60 years Ann. We will miss him as he now embarks on “the greatest adventure of all.”
