Former Wisbech Town Councillor Neville Frusher has died at the age of 79.

Mr Frusher, who represented the Waterlees ward, had fought Alzheimer’s Disease for the past five and a half years.

He passed away peacefully at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn last Wednesday (October 24).

He was married to his wife Pauline for 55 years and leaves three children and six grandchildren.

In 2013, the couple renewed their wedding vows at the Church of St Peter and St Paul in Wisbech to mark their 50th wedding anniversary.

Both were keen co-ordinators for the Waterlees in Bloom flower displays.

In announcing his father’s death, son Julian, said: “It is with great regret that we must announce the death of former Conservative Wisbech Town councillor Mr Neville William Frusher who has passed away aged 79 years old.

“Mr Frusher was the town councillor for the Waterlees Ward for four years and an active member of Wisbech in Bloom.”

The funeral service is being held at St Peter’s Church, Wisbech, on Friday November 9 at 10.30am.

Wisbech Town Council added their condolences, saying Mr Frusher was a “quiet, thoughtful man”.

They posted: “It is with great sadness we hear of the passing of Neville Frusher, past councillor.

“A quiet, thoughtful man who worked hard for Waterlees In Bloom. Our thoughts and condolences go to Pauline, and his family and friends.”
