Wynn Allen Webster

Pateros, WA

Wynn Allen Webster, age 72, passed away at his home in Pateros, WA, on Monday,

January 1, 2018. Wynn was born July 30, 1946, in Omak, WA, to Franklin and

Mary Webster. He was raised in Brewster, WA, and graduated from Brewster High

School in 1964. He attended Gonzaga University on a math scholarship, but

after seeing a play at Fort Wright College (Spokane, WA), he realized his true

passion was acting, switched colleges and majors, and immersed himself in the

world of theatre. Wynn was one of the first male students to graduate from

Fort Wright College in 1968, with a BA degree in drama.

Following graduation, Wynn and three fellow acting students co-founded the

improvisational theater company Etcetera (ETC) in Seattle, WA. In 1970, he

became the technical director for the Seattle based Black Arts West theatre

company.

Wynn returned to Spokane, where he met the love of his life, Chris Tully, and

they were married on December 29, 1973. In 1972, he was offered the position

of technical director for The New Phoenix Theater at the University of

Northern Iowa. This theater's purpose was to introduce inner city black youth

to the many opportunities of the theatre. Wynn taught workshops on stage craft

and designed and built sets for their theatre productions. Following the

closing of the theatre, Wynn and Chris returned to Spokane, where Wynn worked

as the technical director of Inner Players Ensemble at Fort Wright College for

several years.

In 1978, Wynn and Chris moved to Brewster, where he established Webster

Remodel. He was active in this successful business for nearly 40 years. He was

an active member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and chairperson of the

Brewster Food Bank.

Wynn was preceded in death by his father and mother, Frank and Mary Webster;

his brother, Ron Webster; and his nephew, Gabe Webster. He is survived by his

spouse of 44 years, Chris Webster. He is also survived by his daughter, Helen

(Shawn) Webster of Clarkston, WA; brothers: Jim (Chuan-Chuan) Webster of

Tacoma, WA, Kyle (Debra) Webster of Richland, WA, Dan (Kim) Webster of

Brewster, WA; sisters: Laura Lee (Mark) Brownton of San Bernardino, CA, Fran

(Mike) Obermeyer of Spokane Valley, WA, Patty (Mark) Cornett of Albuquerque,

NM, Gen (Mike) Isensee of Spokane Valley, WA; his two beloved grandchildren:

Jillian and Hailey Webster of Clarkston, WA; and many nieces and nephews.

Wynn's family will forever miss his sense of humor and storytelling.
