Mitchell Wayne Webber

Age 11

Walterboro, South Carolina

A goofy little giggle, not forgotten

He lived in Canadys, South Carolina, at a mobile home park in Colleton County. A seventh grader, he attended Colston Branch Baptist Church.

“He knew the love of God and the importance of being a Patriot to one’s country,” his loved ones said. “He possessed the values that so many wish to see in their children…” His aunt wrote that that she will never forget his “goofy little giggle and them helping hands [he gave] to so many people.”

On Oct. 25, 2018, Mitchell Wayne Webber, 12, died from a gunshot wound at Shuman’s Mobile Home Park in Canadys.
