Dean Webb (1936-2010)



The Antelope Valley has lost a friend to the environmental community. On December 26, 2010, Lannie Dean Webb succumbed to a long standing illness. Dean is remembered as a soft spoken, cheerful champion of natural lands and trails. After retiring from a 36 year career with NASA at Edwards Air Force Base, he devoted his energies to the California State Parks, Sierra Club, and local causes. He was a regular voice at City Council meetings and County workshops. Dean was an avid photographer, active in

three photography clubs and manager of the AV Fair Photography Section. Dean served on the boards of the Red Rock Canyon Interpretive Association and Poppy Reserve/Mojave Desert Interpretive Association. He was recently honored by Sierra Club for his work on the Tejon Agreement. He helped several students through college, and volunteered at the Lancaster shelter for the homeless. Dean Webb was loved by many, and will be missed.
