09/30/1950 - 04/29/2023

Richard Alan Webb, a retired Navy Captain and Principle Engineer for UrsaNav, passed away on April 29, 2023, at the age of 72 in Virginia Beach, VA. He was born in Georgia on September 30, 1950.

Richard had a fulfilling career in the Navy Reserves and as an engineer. He was a man of many interests, including cats, science fiction, anime, and all things computer-related. Although he kept to himself, Richard always had a smile to share with his neighbors. He enjoyed yard work and often kept an eye on things when his neighbors were on a trip. His helpful nature and wry sense of humor will be remembered by those who knew him.

Richard was a member of the organ donor program and wanted others to live healthier lives. He lived a life filled with kindness and generosity.

Richard Alan Webb will be missed by his loved ones and the community he touched during his lifetime.

A military service will be held at a later date at Albert G. Horton, Jr. Veterans Memorial Cemetery.

Richard was my neighbor for, at least, 25 years. A brilliant, frugal man, a bit of a recluse, a lover of his cat/s, science fiction, anime, and all around computer geek.

Retired from the military, he was the principal engineer for UrsaNav, working at its Chesapeake, VA, location until his retirement from that position.

Even though he tended to stay to himself, he always had a smile to share with neighbors when he was doing his yardwork. If you needed someone to keep an eye on things when you were on a trip, Richard was always willing to assist. Should you need a lift, he was always willing to help out. On occasion, he even provided another neighbor with a loan to help get them back on their feet. Following in that tradition of silently helping others, Richard was an organ donor; his gift will insure that someone else in the Hampton Roads region continues in good health with a better life.

He had a wry sense of humor, which I personally will miss.
