Zachary Webb Obituary

“Not every hero wears a mask. Some heroes save the day in the simplest of ways. By just being there for us, or letting us know we’re believed in” – The Flash 

Zachary "Flash" Glenn Webb, 23, of Canastota, NY passed away peacefully in the comfort of his home in Brockport, NY on February 29, 2024 after a long, brave battle with a rare heart condition associated with Klippel Feil Syndrome.

Zachary was born in Newark, NJ in 2000. He moved to Upstate NY with his mother, Kellianna Webb in 2003. As a young child, Zachary was the biggest fan of Barney the Dinosaur and reveled in pretend play as Little Bear with his big brother Joshua. Zachary greatly enjoyed playing in their backyard and swimming with his brothers Joshua and Jayden. He was known for becoming the “Mayor” of any program he attended including his time at Jowonio School and Bridgeport Elementary (Chittenango School District). Zachary’s laugh was always infectious. 

Zachary Webb resided at Toomey Residential and the Boys of Courage Residential homes, surrounded by friends and staff, who also became family. Everyone Zach encountered instantly fell in love with his big smile, larger-than-life laugh, strength, and most importantly his heart. He was always drawing and creating stories. His imagination was infinite, and he made the impossible possible. Loving comics, shows & movies, especially superhero movies, making fantasy come alive and proving to the world that he himself was a true superhero. Zachary was a symbol of hope. He saved and inspired lives without even knowing it, through the power of unconditional love. Showing strength through facing fears head-on, rising from every fall and standing up stronger than before. Unapologetically and authentically himself, Zach always portrayed positivity and spread that positivity to others. He was the definition of the Flash.

Zachary proudly graduated from Binghamton City School District in 2018. He was extremely smart, remembering facts, dates and names with ease. 

Nico Arias and Zachary Webb were practically inseparable throughout their lives. They became found family and had a brotherhood like no other. They conquered every hurdle together, providing consistent love and support to one another. 

Hailey Frailey and Zach met at Boys Community Residence. They were quickly attached as Hailey became his personal photographer and illustrator. After he moved on, Zach and Hailey kept in touch; from weekly lunches while he resided in Binghamton to daily phone calls on Hailey’s drive home from work, spending Thanksgiving together and setting out on adventures every 3-4 months when he moved to Brockport. Zach was Hailey’s superhero with the way he chose joy everyday through the midst of his struggles. He was an inspiration to her life and will continue to be. 

Caitlin Houle met Zach 10 years ago at Toomey Residential. Remaining friends, they became found family. He would spend Christmas with Caitlin’s family and she was a large part of his day to day life. From daily phone calls, Friends Trivia, Medical endeavors and through ups and downs, he was the light of Caitlin’s life. He taught her about strength, love, family, and the power of positivity.

The Staff at Strong Memorial Hospital went above and beyond for Zachary. They ensured that he felt safe and cared for. They provided him with food, clothes and shoes during his longer stays and assisted in reserving the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester for his mother and Caitlin; to provide a safe place to stay to ensure Zach had someone there by his side. 

The Ronald McDonald House of Rochester also deserves many thanks. They devoted a great deal of love and support to ensure Zach felt cared for and safe. They were always welcoming and provided a warm place to stay. 

To Dr. Rajiv Devanagondi (Cardiologist), thank you for ensuring that Zachary understood how his body worked, and why his body was reacting the way it was, while assuring him that he would always be supported and comfortable.

To Dr. Dawn Sweeney (anesthesiologist), Mia Walker (Zach’s Caseworker), Julie Johnson (Social Worker), Cynthia Sizer (Rep-payee), Victoria Coleman (Monroe County Sheriff), and other professionals that were a large part of Zach’s life: Thank you for your hard work and dedication to Zachary Webb. You all ensured that he was loved, cared for and supported. It shows the power and impact that working as a team and community can have.
