Eric Walker, a recipient of the British Empire Medal, was elected in 1973 and represented Doddinghurst until 1988.

The council’s leader, Cllr Louise McKinlay, said: “Eric Walker served on the council for 15 years and in that time he was chairman from 1980 to 1981.

“Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family at this sad time.”

A private cremation will take place on January 16, followed by a service of celebration held at 11.30am at the All Saints Church of Church Lane, Doddinghurst.

All residents are welcome to attend, but there are to be family flowers only.

Brentwood Borough Council’s flag will be flown at half mast on the day of the funeral and a minute’s silence will be observed at the next ordinary council meeting.
