Paramedics tried, but were unable to revive him after he collapsed at around 4pm
In a statement by Councillor Cliff Jordan, Leader of Norfolk County Council, said: “I cannot think of a single man who has risen to the top of his profession as Harold did this year and been so universally liked.
“He was the very epitome of public service and of the caring professions. It goes without saying that our thoughts are with his family at this very distressing time.”
Norfolk and Suffolk Dementia Alliance tweeted: “Shocked and saddened at untimely death of Harold Bodmer. Founding father of our alliance; he will be greatly missed.”
