John Anthony “Tony” Webb, 59, passed away October 24, 2020 after a courageous battle with leukemia. Tony was born April 15, 1961 in Norfolk Virginia to Charles and Wilma Webb.   He was a 1980 graduate of Indian River High School. Left to cherish his memory is his wife Rebecca Webb; children, Ryan Pittman,  Brandon Pittman and Ryan Johnson;  brother Gene Webb (Joyce); Aunt Pat Goslee (Jim), Uncle Ernie Webb (Karen) and Uncle Dennis Webb (Betty) and a host of nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by his parents and brother Jimmie Webb.  A memorial service for Tony will be held at Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside Chapel (5033 Rouse Dr. Virginia Beach, VA 23462) on Saturday, October 31 at 11:00 AM.
Tony was a lifelong resident of Chesapeake and an active alumni of Indian River High School. He was an Electrician by trade and employed by Watson Electrical Construction Company for 31 years most recently as a Project Manager/Estimator.
He enjoyed spending his leisure time outdoors.  You could find Tony attending to his yard or planting and maintaining his vegetable garden.  He would also spend time in the garage tinkering with various projects.  He would always find something that needed fixing and made sure it was operable when he finished the job.
Tony loved all sports. He was a diehard Redskin fan, coached baseball and soccer, and was also an avid bowler. Tony and his brothers were raised pitching horseshoes which is why it isn’t a surprise that he eventually became the President of the Chesapeake Horseshoe Club. 
Tony’s journey with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) was by far the toughest battle of his life.  However, he handled it with grace and dignity and never gave up or stopped pushing forward.  He would always say “tomorrow will be a better day”.  The pain and suffering were monumental but he never complained.   
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the University Of Virginia Medical Center and Hospital, Virginia Oncology Associates Chesapeake and Chesapeake Cancer Treatment Center.  We would also like to thank the multitude of friends that have helped us during this journey. 
Although it is hard to say goodbye we are at peace knowing that his suffering is over and we are comforted by his memories.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at

My cousin Tony was one of my hero’s when I was growing up. Playing baseball, football, crabbing off the Elizabeth river. Good ol sleep overs at aunt Wilma’s and uncle Charlies. Think of us and tony’s neighborhood friends as the movie Sandlot and that is how we rolled. Tony I will miss you and all my life nurturing during the times we were together. Thank you Rebecca, Gene, Paige and everyone else for being great and loving family members. Tony rest in peace. Love Jeff Hawkins

I am so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. I have known him for many years. I have never met anyone with the caliber of class combined with the strength of character that he had. Such an honor to have known him. God bless you Tony and bring comfort to all you love.
