HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. -- A master sergeant from the 16th Communications Squadron was pronounced dead Wednesday morning at an area hospital. 

Master Sgt. Dallas Webb, 43, was found unconscious in the backyard of his home in Commando Village at approximately 7 a.m. He was transported by ambulance to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 7:53 a.m. 

Sergeant Webb was born in Alexandria, La. He joined the Air Force in 1983 as a computer systems analyst. 

"We're all grieving the loss of Dallas," said Lt. Col. Michael Hammond Jr., 16th CS commander. "Although he had not been with us in the squadron long, he had made a positive impact and impression on us all. He was the leader any commander would want in their unit. Our focus is to fully support his family in every way as they mourn in their loss." 

Sergeant Webb is survived by his wife of 14 years and two daughters.
A memorial service for Sergeant Webb is scheduled for today at 10 a.m. in the base chapel.
