Edward (Ted) George Webb
July 18, 1949 – December 21, 2018
This gentle, lovely man has passed after a 3 year battle Myotonic Dystrophy. He was & is Antoinette’s great love. Ted passed surrounded with love, by his wife, children, close family and dear friends.
Ted was born and raised in Duncan, a natural athlete Ted played (pitched) little league baseball, played high school football with the Cowichan Timbermen, competed in tennis & played badminton, volleyball and basketball. Later in life Ted played flag football and old timers hockey.
Ted graduated from the University of Victoria in 1973 & started his teaching career in Kitamat B.C. with his first wife Gill. After 2 years Ted returned to the Cowichan Valley and taught high school at Cowichan Senior Secondary until his retirement in 2009. Ted received his masters degree for Administrative Curriculum in 1995, at Gonzaga University in Washington State.
Throughout Ted’s tenure as a teacher he spent countless hours & weekends coaching basketball (senior boys team). His passion was basketball and coaching. Ted started the summer basketball hoop camp with the goal of igniting a love of the game in young players and also as a very successful fund raiser for the team.
As a young teacher, Ted’s resemblance to the actor Tom Selick, earned him the nick name among his students of “Magnum P.E.” much to his embarrassment.
Left to grieve for this wonderful man is his devoted and loving wife Antoinette, sons Tony (Serah), Geoffrey and daughter Caitlin (Bryce), his sister Irene Deschene (Al), grand children Taylor and Adelyn, Ted’s many beloved nieces and nephews and dear friends and students.
