Tributes have been paid to Southwold historian Ronnie Waters, who has died aged 91.
Mr Waters died on Monday, February 2 after a period of ill health and was best-known to many as the manager of Hutson's butchers and was a familiar face on Southwold Council, where he served for 40 years.
Jenny Hursell was Town Council Clerk for 25 years with Mr Waters and said it was a 'privilege' to know him.
'Ronnie was a man of high standards, loyalty, prudence and integrity in both public and private life,' she said.
'Southwold will be largely unaware of its debt to him because he was a modest man who never trumpeted his achievements but he has left an obvious legacy of which it is aware, namely the research he put into the town's businesses brought to life by Barry Tolfree in the Southwold and Son website.
