Family and friends remember loved ones lost in fatal crash

By  | 

MARSHALL COUNTY, Okla. (KXII)-- Family and friends grieved Friday after two men were killed in a Marshall County car crash Thursday morning.

"Its hard when you're a parent, to try and process that your child is gone." Mother Audray Dixon-Mims said.

Dixon-Mims described her son as a country boy, and a family man.

"He liked to cook, he liked to fish, and he loved his kids," Dixon-Mims said. "He was a momma's boy, as he'd tell anybody."

37-year-old Rashad Webb of Ardmore was killed Thursday morning on his way to work in Madill, in a head on collision on Highway 70 in the fog.

"This is not something that anybody should, you know, have to go through," Webb's sister. Brya Pope, said. "My mom, she shouldn't have to bury her child."

Webb leaves behind five children, ages seven to 15. Just over a year ago, they lost their mother- Webb's wife- to cancer.

"Its been really hard. Because the kids are just now getting to where they can cope, and then this happens," Dixon-Mims said. "So they're having to start all over again."

The other driver, 64- year -old Edward Trobaugh of Kingston, was also killed in the crash. His neighbor Robert Wilkerson says he considered him a dear friend, often fishing together.

"We were more than neighbors, we really was," Wilkerson said. "When I got the news he was gone, I was just shocked."

He says Trobaugh was kind, and always wiling to help.

"Say anything, he'd do anything for you," Wilkerson said. "He'd give you the shirt off his back if you asked him. He was just a great guy."

Webb's funeral will be Wednesday morning at 11 at the Harvey Douglas funeral home. Family is asking those attending wear his favorite color, blue. A GoFundMe pagel has been set up in his name.

Trobaugh's funeral will be Tuesday afternoon at 2, at the Browns Funeral Home in Madill.
