Obituary of James Paul Webster
Sodus: Age 75, passed away on September 14, 2022.
Jim was born in Rochester, NY to the late Ruth (Dodge) Webster and the late Harris Webster on December 25, 1946. He attended Monroe High School in Rochester, NY and graduated in 1964. He went on to earn a degree in Accounting from Alfred State. Jim and his wife, Ann, had a seasonal site at the Merry Knoll Campground, in Clayton, NY. For over 45 years, Jim enjoyed fishing on the St. Lawrence River with his friends Danny and Sam, and watching the ships pass by. For the better part of his career, he worked in sales and traveled all over NY State where he made many life-long connections. In his early years, Jim taught and coached hockey at the Aquinas Institute. In 2021, he and his team were inducted into the Aquinas Hall of Fame, on the 50th anniversary of the team winning the first Section 5 hockey championship. Jim was a 25-year member of the National Ski Patrol at Brantling Ski and Snowboard Center and a Level 3 Technical Delegate for downhill ski racing. When his children were young, he enjoyed watching them participate in various sports, especially ski racing, where he traveled throughout NY and New England to tune skis, carry equipment, warm fingers and toes, officiate races and cheer for all racers. Later, Jim could be found on the sidelines or in the seats of his grandchildren's numerous events, from softball and soccer, to theater, dance and basketball.
