LOS ANGELES — Mars Webster, co-owner of Webster Instrument, died this spring at the age of 66.

Born in 1952, he graduated from University High School in Los Angeles. He then worked at Walt Disney Productions before joining the family business where he later became president and part-owner with his brother Patrick.

“He cared for his employees as if they were family, and will be truly missed at the ‘shop,’” his family wrote. “A love for motorcycles and fast vehicles was what he became known for, and spent many vacations traveling around the world with friends exploring the racing world. Trips to Isle of Man and being surrounded by bikes and friends were some of his fondest memories. Mars had a special love for his church family and enjoyed serving as Greeter at Hope Chapel and then King's Harbor Church. We will truly miss his ‘out of this world’ personality.”

He is survived by his brothers Patrick Webster and John Webster, his uncle Mark Webster and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

Webster Instrument is known for its line of hardness testers, made in three distinct models for testing aluminum, brass, copper and mild steel. For more information about the business, visit websterinstrument.com.
