Who or What is Del Webb?

Del Webb, the founder, began his company, in 1928, after moving to Phoenix, Arizona after a bout of typhoid fever.

Sun City included five model homes, a shopping center, a recreation center and a golf course. The opening of Sun City was a great success and made the cover of Time magazine. Del Webb died in 1974, leaving behind an extremely successful company. The Del E Webb Construction Company was eventually renamed Del Webb Corporation and eventually merged with Pulte Homes, one of the largest home building companies, in 2001.
