Roy Blower, who had served as a Labour city and county councillor, magistrate, school governor and Lord Mayor of Norwich, has died at the age of 76.
A celebration of a life well lived will be held at St Peter Mancroft Church in Norwich at 2pm on Thursday, June 27.
His wife Beryl Blower, a former Sheriff of Norwich, said: “Roy would not have wanted it to be a sombre occasion, so we really want it to be a celebration.
Everybody is welcome to attend the celebration service, which Beryl wants to be a colourful affair.
In reference to Roy’s love of Norwich City she said: “We’d like people to wear bright colours – preferably yellow and green, of course.”
Roy was a Labour city councillor for University ward from 2004 until 2011, when he stepped down a year after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.
