September 23, 2014|By Frederick N. Rasmussen | The Baltimore Sun

Brian K. "Kim" Webb, a semi-retired insurance executive who was a lifelong supporter of McDonogh School, died Tuesday at Wayne Memorial Hospital in Goldsboro, N.C., of cancer. He was 77.

The son of Charles Edward Webb, a Revere Copper & Brass Co. purchasing agent, and Mary Agnes Roche Webb, a Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co. operator, Brian Kimbal Webb was born in Baltimore and raised in Hamilton.

He was a 1956 graduate of McDonogh School and attended the University of Maryland, College Park. He served in the Navy and began his insurance career with Foremost Insurance Co. in Grand Rapids, Mich.

While working for the insurance company, Mr. Webb worked in Virginia, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Florida.

In 1997, he became owner and operator of Borden RV Insurance Agency in Goldsboro, that is still family owned and operated, and was semi-retired form the agency at his death.

He was a member of McDonogh's alumni board for years, and helped coordinate class donations that supported continuing education for faculty. He also worked to gather financial support for the school's archives.

"He attended events at the school even though he lived more than 400 miles away," said a son, Bryan Kipling "Kip" Webb of Baltimore.

Mr. Webb was a fan of the Baltimore Colts, Orioles and Ravens. He also enjoyed attending University of Maryland and Naval Academy sporting events.

He was a sports car buff and still drove a 1962 Austin Healy that he had purchased new. He enjoyed vacationing at his cottage at Craigville Beach in Barnstable, Mass.

Mr. Webb also liked reading about military aircraft and railroad history.

He was a communicant of St. Mary of the Angels Roman Catholic Church in Mount Olive, N.C.

Plans for a memorial service to be held at McDonogh School are incomplete.

In addition to his son, Mr. Webb is survived by his wife of 51 years, the former Nancy Hamblet; three other sons, Andrew Jay Webb of Northborough, Mass., Alexander Hamblet Webb of Jackson Hole, Wyo., and Michael Charles Webb of Jackson, Wyo.; and 12 grandchildren.
