Bryan Webb

Date of birth 22/3/33, Ealing, London

Passed away peacefully after a short illness on 5/2/13 in hospital in Coventry.

 

Bryan Webb held a number of appointments in the minor metals industry as a trader working for Fergusson Wild, British Metal Corp, Amalgamated Metal, and finally with BOC Metals as Deputy General Manager leaving to co-found Aimet Resources in 1982 where he worked until his retirement in 2011 at the age of 78.

Bryan was an enthusiastic supporter of the industry, having served as Chairman of the Minor Metals Trade Association during the late 1970s. He was also well known as a member of the Sheffield Metal Club and the Cripplegate Ward Club.

Bryan joined the industry soon after leaving the RAF in 1957 where he served as a navigator during his National Service, flying Canberra bombers.

He spent 50 years as an active trader, and often said how he loved the “buzz” from being part of the market and setting up deals.

Outside of work he played squash for over 30 years in Wimbledon and later switched to snooker.

In 2011 he moved from Raynes Park, SW London to Rugby, Warwickshire, with his wife Sheila to be nearer to his only son, Andrew, and his family. He was married to Sheila for 50 years. She predeceased him in June 2012. Bryan passed away peacefully on 5 Feb 2013 after a short illness aged 79.

There will be a short service at Oakley Wood Crematorium, near Leamington Spa,  on Weds 27th Feb at 10.45am, and thereafter at 211, Montague Road, Bilton, Warwickshire, CV22 6LG.

 Former colleagues are welcome to attend. Flowers can be sent c/o Wilf Smith & Co Funeral Directors, Rugby.
