Brother Stanley Webb III passed-away in May 2012, from a long battle with cancer.
Stanley was a lifelong resident of Odem, Texas. He was a successful farmer & developer in the Odem area.
A few years ago, Stanley’s name was on the “Lost Brothers” list. Since I was from Odem and knew Stanley, I reported his address and phone number. He was also on “Facebook”. Believe he was initiated in the early sixties… 1962 or 1963. I graduated in 1961, and he was a few years behind me.
His Obituary was in the “Odem-Edroy Times”, back in May.
I do not have all his information. I know he left a wife & children & grandchildren. I did not have a contact for ATO-ZM, until I received an email yesterday (8-5-2012). Please add Stanley’s name to your “Chapter Eternal’“ list.

85% of Fortune 500 executives were part of Greek life. The first female astronaut was Greek. So was the first female senator. And college graduation rates are 20% higher among Greeks than non-Greeks.
Which begs an obvious question: Does being in a fraternity or sorority increase your chance for success?
