in memoriam

Christopher Howland Webber
Christopher Howland Webber, 25, program director for Bike & Build, a national non-profit organization,
died early Saturday morning, March 3, 2007, of injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident in New York City
where he lived.
Webber, 25, combined his love of sport, his interest in people, and his passion for community service by
organizing bicycle tours for college students across the United States to raise funds for affordable housing
projects and to introduce the riders to the housing needs in American communities. Over the past four
seasons Bike & Build has contributed over $750,000 to housing projects around the country. Webber had
held the position since late 2005.
“Chris’s dedication to Bike & Build and his unwavering desire to strengthen the organization constantly
impressed me,” said Bike & Build executive director, Amelia Hanley. “The passion he had for the
organization came largely from his interactions with riders and alumni. He constantly told me that his
favorite part of the job was being on the road, meeting riders and getting to know them.” Before joining the
organization staff, Webber had himself ridden on two east coast to west coast fund-raising trips.
Webber was an adventurer who had traveled widely. In 1999, at the age of 17, he rode a 1200 km bike trip
from Cairns to Cape York, Australia. He was the only American on the tour, and the youngest. During a
college semester abroad at University College, London, he traveled extensively on the European continent.
He spent time in western Canada. He later traveled across Australia a second time by train from Sydney to
Webber grew up in Andover, Massachusetts, where he attended the Pike School. When his family spent a
year in Buffalo, NY, he attended eighth grade at the Nichols School in Buffalo. He graduated from
Middlesex School in Concord, MA, in June of 2000. He deferred his college admission to Vassar College to
work for a year in a condominium resort in Snowmass, CO, and to become an expert skier. He graduated
from Vassar in May 2005, with a Bachelor of Arts in economics and psychology. After graduation, he
worked briefly for the Navy Department in Washington, D.C., before moving to New York and joining Bike
& Build.
He is survived by his parents, Joan G. Howland and William J. Webber, of Andover, MA; by a brother,
Nicholas G. Webber, also of Andover; his paternal grandmother, Theresa M. Webber of Quincy, MA; and
aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was pre-deceased by his paternal grandfather, James A. Webber, Sr., of
Dorchester, MA, and his maternal grandparents, Mary G. and Dr. Murray S. Howland of Buffalo, NY.
A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at 1:00 P.M., on Saturday, March 31, 2007, at the Vassar
College Chapel, Poughkeepsie, NY, with a reception following. The family will also receive friends on
Friday evening, March 9, 2007, between 5 and 8 P.M., at the Dewhirst & Conte Funeral Home, 28 Florence
Street, Andover, MA.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions in Christopher’s memory be made to Bike &
Build/Chris Webber Fund, 190 N. 10th Street, Suite, 308, Brooklyn, NY 11211.
