Doc was born September 24, 1951 in Little Rock, Arkansas to John and Rea (Haston) Webb. Doc never met a stranger. He was a friend to everyone that he knew. He had a gentle soul and would do anything to help someone out. Doc made a difference in so many people's lives from training his staff to further their careers, supporting upcoming musicians, loaning equipment to get jobs done, sharing his knowledge and wisdom with anyone that needed his guidance.
Doc was an intriguing and fascinating person. He loved adventure and was willing to try anything. His adventures provided interesting tales.
He had several passions. He had a group of close friends that went on hunting trips since 1984. The group went on trips to Mexico, Colorado, and South Texas. They always wondered what Doc would bring this year. He was known to bring anything from cooking supplies to canoes. He always had a new gadget to try.
Doc loved to fish. He would watch fishing shows on TV for new techniques and equipment. His wife said he had more lures than The Bass Pro Shops.
Doc's biggest passion was flying. He would fly anything with wings. During his life he owned 42 different planes. He loved to share his passion and became a flight instructor to teach his friends and family how to fly.
Doc was educated in Texas and Arkansas. He graduated from Mountain View High School in Arkansas in 1969. He worked on the railroad before attending Arkansas Central College, majoring in Chemistry, with a swimming scholarship. He opened his first practice in 1978 in Atlanta, Texas. His second practice opened in 1978 in Gainesville where Doc practiced for 38 years. The day he opened the TSO in Gainesville, the line of patients was down the street. In 1988 he added a satellite office in Bonham, Texas. Doc also had a degree in audiology.

If I ever had any questions about how the eyes worked, not only would Dr. Webb take the the time to explain it to me, he drew illustrations as well. ♥️♥️♥️ He helped my daughter see better and also her class “pet.” We will all miss him here. And let’s not forget about his amazing holiday ties! He always made us smile with how festive he was!
