Sam Webb Golston, 85, of Denton, Texas, departed this life Saturday, May 31, 2014. Born August 7, 1928, in Mobile, Alabama, he was raised in Santa Anna, Texas, and lived in Texas most of his life. He married Diana Miter on June 16, 1962, in El Paso, Texas.

Webb was loved and respected by his family and an abundance of people in all walks of life. He was an astute businessman with many successful businesses and enjoyed the challenge. An avid hunter and fisherman, he was able to fulfill his dreams of traveling the world for both. He was a good friend to many, a loving and devoted husband, father, and family man. Yet, he was first and foremost a man of great faith who served his redeemer, Jesus Christ. He will be missed.
