Sad news to report from Ashland, Kentucky. Sisters Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle have suffered a loss in their family.
Their brother, Herman Webb, has died. He was 83.
According to The Washington Post, Webb died Saturday at King’s Daughters Medical Center in Ashland. Gayle posted a tribute to her brother on Facebook. He died surrounded by his children.
"Our brother, Herman Webb passed away this morning in Kentucky with his wonderful children around him," Gayle wrote of Webb. "Some of you may know Herman from the countless tours he gave of the old home place in Kentucky or from his days performing with his band. He was a great musician!”
She added, "I called Herman “The Sheriff of Butcher Hollow”. I even found him a badge to make it “official.' I know he is now and forever a sheriff in Heaven. We love and miss you, Herman!"
Webb was the third oldest child of the family, according to Taste of Country. He was the keeper of their original home in Van Lear, Kentucky. Throughout the years, he gave personal guided tours of the property, which delighted fans.
In addition to Lynn and Gayle, Webb is survived by his sisters Peggy and Betty. He was the last surviving son out of the eight children. Donald, his younger brother, died last year at the age of 76.
Please remember his family in your prayers tonight. Share your memories of him on our Facebook page.
