Cllr Doug Pullen, leader of Lichfield District Council, said:
“I was devastated to hear the news that one of our former district councillors, Doug Constable, has died.
“Doug served the people of Lichfield District for an incredible 38 years.
“With such a long service, in his time Doug sat on many committees and was chairman and vice chairman, including for planning, regulatory and licensing, strategic overview and scrutiny, employment, and parish forum.
“He also took on the role of chairman of the council from 1983 to 1984.
“He will be remembered with much fondness, and on behalf of the council I would like to send my condolences to his wife, Brenda, and all his family and friends at this very sad time.”
