Born in Baltimore and raised in Roland Park, Mr. Hebb spent his summers at Westbury Manor, the family farm in St. Mary's County, where his family had settled and lived since the 1600s. His grandfather, John Stephen Hebb, had been a member of the Chesapeake Bay Pilots Association from 1844 to 1900 and had served as president of the organization.

Mr. Hebb was a graduate of Charlotte Hall Military Academy and earned his bachelor's degree in 1936 from the University of Maryland. He received his law degree in 1938 from the University of Maryland Law School.

He was an avid boater and enjoyed sailing his motor cruiser Hebb Tied on the Chesapeake Bay. He was a member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the Merchants Club, the Baltimore Country Club, the Barristers Club and the Mayflower Society.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at Roland Park Presbyterian Church, Roland Avenue and Upland Road.
