10/09/1933 - 12/28/2023

Charles Wesley Webb, 90, passed away peacefully December 28, 2023 in Gilbert, Arizona. Charlie was born and raised in Phoenix to Wesley and Vivian Webb and had four siblings. At a young age he enlisted in the US Army and proudly served two terms.  

Following his military service, he enrolled at Phoenix College and was a member of the 1962 National Junior College Championship Baseball Team. He transferred to and graduated from University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education. 

Charlie had a love for baseball and in the 1950’s he coached several City and American Legion baseball teams. In 1960 thru 1963 he coached Stewart Motors, a semi-pro baseball team that won several state titles and attended the national tournament in Wichita, KS three times.  

Following college, he began his career at Camelback High School in Phoenix and served as its head baseball coach from 1965 to 1986 where his teams were Divisional Champions 6 times and State Runner-Up in 1985, retiring from coaching and teaching in 1995. His success as a coach earned him entry into the Arizona High School Athletic Coaches Hall of Fame in 1988. Charlie was known to have and maintain one of the best baseball fields in the state, just ask his former players who had to stay after practices and games to keep it that way. 

Charlie had a love for camping, fishing and hunting and built a family cabin in Greer, AZ in 1979 where he and his wife, Patsy, spent their summers. After retirement he also enjoyed being an assistant baseball coach at Scottsdale Community College and Corona del Sol High School and fitted in attending most all of his grandkids sporting events. 

Charlie is survived by his wife of 53 years, Patsy, and their two children, David (Kellie) and Deanna. He is also survived by 3 siblings and 3 stepchildren, Debora, Dennis (Tina) and Douglas, and 4 grandchildren, Jacob (fiancé Lizzy), Daniel, Bryan and Kacie. Services will be private.

  • I graduated Camelback High School in 1971. Though I did not play baseball for coach Webb, I new him to be a good man and, yes, his ball field was a work of art.

  • John and Dorothy Vincent

    I met Charlie in 1960 at Phoenix College, played baseball for him with Stewart Motors semi-pro team. We became good friends, both my wife and I, with both Charlie and Patsy. Charlie was just fun to be around. I will miss his upbeat attitude, his spontaneous laughter was contagious. People like Charlie Webb only come around once in a while. He was special and We will miss him. Rest in Peace.

  • A giant in Phoenix baseball history! Rest in peace, Coach Webb.

    I am very sad to learn of the death of Coach Charlie Webb. I have great respect for his prowess in baseball
    and all the success he had over all the years. I knew Patsy as a very active parent and great supporter of my class room teaching at Madison Park School where I taught both Debbie and Dennis,who were outstanding students and great citizens. I met Charlie at teacher conferences. We mostly talked about baseball. God bless the entire
    Webb family.

  • I attended Camelback High School for only one year in 1970-71. I was then, and still am a terrible athlete, and scrawny. Coach Webb still knew who I was and we had a warm relationship for years. He came to my wedding in ’79. Through the years I would visit him on campus but I got busy with my own family and career and we grew apart- for which I am to blame. A few months ago I thought about him. I tried to find him but did not succeed, only to see the obituary yesterday.
    In Judaism we call people like Coach Webb a “mensch.” This means a person of integrity.
    My sincerest condolences to his family

  • Charlie Webb was one of the most respected coaches in the state of Arizona. He was passionate about his sport, ethical in his coaching, and loved his players like his own sons! He was a teacher that was kind, knowledgeable and fair in all aspects of teaching. He was a family man and loved Patsy, David and Deanna! He will be sorely missed. Rest in peace Charlie…”Well done good and faithful servant.”

  • I never knew Charlie, but played against his baseball teams in the State tourney games in Mesa. and only wish
    he would have been my coach. I met him at Mountain Point High school while he and his Wife were watching a baseball game that my son Brad Rogers was coaching. I walked up to Charlie and started talking to him and his wife. It was like he remembered from years ago who I was. What a great and wonderful man he was. So, I am very sorry for your loss and give my condolences to the Webb family. Sincerely, Paul Rogers

  • Coach Webb was a great motivator of young men, an encouraging and compassionate friend, and a loving family member! I remember his generous help in building the Saunders cabin in August, 1977. Prayers of comfort, strength, and peace for Patsy, family, and friends.
