Leon Webster, Jr. was born in Houston, Texas to the late Mildred Wilson Martin and Leon Webster, Sr. and raised in Hills Prairie, Texas. His grandparents Freeman and Maud Wilson were prominent in his upbringing. After graduating from Emile High School in Bastrop, Texas, he served in the U.S. Navy and was honorably discharged as a Vietnam War veteran.
Throughout his life, he was proud to be a “self-made” man as the owner of Leon’s Custom Ranch Fence and employer of anyone who came looking for work. He operated his small businesses throughout the Houston and Central Texas areas doing cattle ranching, horse trading, fence building, land clearing, hay hauling, saw milling, construction and home remodeling for over 30 years. He also was an event promoter, bringing Jazz and Blues concerts to the Smithville area. He owned and operated Cowboy’s Place, a club and restaurant for a decade. He ran for public office in the local area and was recognized with a street being renamed in his honor, Webster Street.
His favorite pastimes included hunting, fishing, telling and re-telling stories about hunting and fishing. Ever the animated storyteller, he made sure the deer’s points or fish’s weight grew in size with each retelling.
He was preceded in death by his parents and sister Marsha Ann Martin King. He leaves to honor his memory his daughters Leonysia (Carlos) Watson and Mysha (Michael) Lubke. He is survived by his sisters Roxanne Martin Washington and Stephanie Martin Johnson, and brother Marcellus Anthony Martin. He will be missed by his cherished dog Sweety and a host of relatives and friends.
