He was born in Nokesville, Virginia in Prince William County on Thursday, June 30, 1927, the youngest child of the Late John Webster and the Late Dora Burgess Webster. After attending Public School in Manassas, Virginia and Washington, DC, he enlisted in the United States Army and served in both the World War II and Korean War.

In 1950 he married Yvonne-K. Jackson, whom he met while a student at Howard University.

After returning from the Korean War he attended Washington Technical Institute where he earned an Associate Degree in Criminology. His love for the law inspired him to return to school to receive his Bachelor Degree from Federal City College/University of the District of Columbia in Sociology. He also took many courses and received certificates in Dental Technology and Auditing/Accounting.

Walter Webster was employed by the US Post Office and remained there until the early 1960’s when the office relocated to New Jersey. Other governmental agencies with whom he was employed were the US Treasury Department and US Commerce Department. His final employment was with the DC Department of Corrections. He was stationed at the Lorton Prison Complex and served as a Supervisory Senior Captain. He remained there until his retirement in 1988

Walter Webster was an enthusiastic activist in the community. As a young parent, he organized and enacted programs for youth games and activities. As one of the youngest leaders of his Masonic lodge he started the yearly custom of inviting inner city boys to summer club outings. A member of the DC Civic Association and the Fort Totten Civic Association he worked avidly with the community leaders on programs that safeguarded and enhanced the lives of his neighbors – such as the Orange Hats (Neighborhood Watch) and counseling those community youth who asked for help.

Walter Webster later returned to St Phillips Baptist Church, the church in which he was married, and chose to served faithfully on the usher board until a disabling stroke in May 2001. He previously served as the Chairman of the Trustee Board at Rehobeth Baptist Church in Southeast DC.
