Webber died peacefully at his home in Mollington, near Banbury, after a short illness. He left a wife, Diana, and four children Anthony, Paul, Teresa and Sarah. After riding in point-to-points as well as under Rules, then a training career spanning 38 years as a permit holder and fully licensed trainer, Webber had planned to hand over the reins of his operation to Paul at the end of this year.
