The sad news today is the announcement that Gary Weston-Webb (aka Wally Weta) passed away suddenly seemingly at work. Gary was a superb runner and long-time member of the WHAC A team in the 1980's that conquered all locally. Gary was often seen on lunchtime runs as part of Roger Robinson's sausage session group and with his distinctive head of hair resembled Charles I in shorts. Gary helped design the core of the current Vosseler Shield course and the infamous five-hills training run. In more recent times he has been a committee member of Karori Athletics and helped launch the new Kids XC series that started last year. Last month he was helping at the gate at the National T&F Champs at Newtown Park. Gary was a witty guy who will be missed for his pithy coments and dry sense of humour. He will be a huge loss to the running community.
WESTON WEBB, Gary Ronald. - Suddenly on 16th April 2014 at Te Puni Kokiri House, Wellington, aged 60 years. Gary's family offer heartfelt thanks to his work friends, the emergency services people who attended and to Te Puni Kokiri House for all their kindness and support. Messages may be sent to 'The Weston Webb Family', PO Box 10987, The Terrace, Wellington.
