Carson “Pete” Wayne Webster, of Eldersburg, Maryland, passed away on March 15, 2021 at the age of 83, after a long battle in the hospital with illness. Prior to his passing, he grew strong enough to come back to his home where had lived for 47 years and spend time in the company of his children, who he loved so much.
Born on November 18, 1937 in White Hall, Maryland, Carson was the son of the late Essie (Holt) and Carl Webster. He spent twenty-four happy years of marriage with his wife, Mary Teresa (Lynch) Webster, until her passing in 1990.
Carson was always a hard worker. He started working at a general store at a young age, where he earned the nickname of “Pete”. He continued to work a variety of jobs while attending North Harford High School in Pylesville, Maryland, where he played varsity basketball. Shortly after graduating from high school, he enlisted in the Air Force and served overseas in Europe until his honorable discharge in 1960 after four years of service. Later, Carson worked as an Engineering Technician for Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) for nearly 40 years. He was well respected at JHU/APL, earning a patent for his work with the Backfire Bifilar Helix Antenna in 1986.
Carson kept in touch with the many friends that he made throughout his lifetime. In addition to the time that he spent with his high school, military service, and work friends, Carson enjoyed spending time with his neighbors, and with the friends that he made at the local library in Eldersburg.
Family was very important to Carson. He especially loved the time that he spent with his children and grandchildren. He also enjoyed family gatherings and holiday celebrations in Harford County, splitting time visiting the Webster and Lynch families. Carson always said that Thanksgiving was his favorite time of the year, with family, good food, and the fall weather.
Prior to his wife, Teresa, passing, they took multiple camping trips with their children to various locations in Western Maryland, where they enjoyed hiking, swimming in the lakes, and preparing camp side meals. Carson also enjoyed his many fishing trips to Western Maryland.
Gardening was another of his favorite activities. Carson was very generous in sharing the fruits and vegetables that he grew each year with his family, friends, and neighbors. He also enjoyed cooking meals for his family.
Carson will always be fondly remembered as an unassuming, intelligent, kind, and extremely generous man. He is survived by his brother B. Keith Webster and Patricia Webster of the Villages, Florida, his beloved children Susan Webster of Severna Park, Maryland, Brian Webster and wife, Heather, of Pasadena, Maryland, Greg Webster and wife, Cindy, of Hollywood, Maryland, his grandchildren Emma, Ellie, Rachel, Peyton, and Lila, as well as his brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, many nieces and nephews and their families, and many friends.
