Jim Kendall, who was housing manager at the former Honiton Borough Council, died on January 5. He was 87.
Mr Kendall, for many years, was a familiar face at dance halls throughout East Devon and beyond, playing in a family dance band. He went on to become a pivotal member of Honiton Town Band and, almost up until his death, still contributed band news to the Royal British Legion newsletter.
He was a long-standing and staunch member of Honiton Evangelical Congregational Church, where a memorial service will take place tomorrow at 11.30am.
A funeral service was held at Exeter Crematorium on Monday.
