The International Council of Marine Industry Associations on Monday reported the passing of Tom Webb, a founding member and its secretary general from its foundation in 1967 until 1979.

Webb was elected an honorary member in 1980 and remaind one of only four elected to that position to this day.

He was secretary and later director general of the British Marine Federation's forerunners from 1950 until his retirement in 1986. He oversaw the great expansion of the industry during this period and participated in all key U.K. and international initiatives during those years, according to ICOMIA.

"A true visionary for our industry and giant of his times, we mourn his passing and give thanks for his life of service to our recreational marine industry," the organization said in a statement.
