Dr Richard Stott, 65, who had been a doctor in the borough since he moved to Epsom 30 years ago, died on January 20.
He had first worked as a GP at a practice in Epsom High Street and then at Cedars Cottage in Church Street, before working at the Old Cottage Hospital in Alexandra Road. He retired as a senior partner from the Old Cottage Hospital five years ago.
Clare Stott, Dr Stott’s wife of 39 years, said he was "adored by his patients".
She said he was also a "brilliant artist" who completed an art degree after retiring, having studied a foundation year at the University for the Creative Arts in Epsom and then a degree at Farnham Art College.
