Alan Henry Webb, 92, of Portland, passed away on March 7, 2024.  Born in Middletown on September 27, 1931, he was the son of Henry H. Webb and Esther (Grenman) Webb and lived most of his life in Higganum, CT.

Alan is survived by the love of his life and wife of sixty-six years, Veronika Riggs Webb; a granddaughter Patricia Aileen Osborne of Naugatuck, CT and his great grandchildren, Gavin Michael, Olivia Madison and Christopher Joseph Osborne of Naugatuck, CT.  He was also very close/proud of his great nephew and his wife, Jeffrey and Linda Petras and their two sons, great grandnephews, Nathan and Seth, all of Kentucky.

Along with his parents, Alan was predeceased by his beloved son and daughter, Christopher Alan Webb and Kim-Jean Webb-Walsh.

He joined Travelers Insurance in 1980 and retired in 1995.
