Mr de Putron was in island politics for nine years
Former prominent Guernsey politician John de Putron died at his home in St Peter Port on Saturday.
Mr de Putron, 80, served as a St Peter Port Deputy and then Conseiller between 1973 and 1982.
He served on some very prominent committees including as president of the Recreation and Population and Migration Committees.
Former Deputy Dan Le Cheminant described him as someone from the "old school" who worked very hard.
Mr Le Cheminant, who served on several committees with Mr de Putron, said: "He got on with people from all walks of life.
"He was one of those people who thought very deeply before he actually spoke in the States."
"He wasn't one who spoke on every subject, but when he did he'd obviously done his homework and often spoke at length on subjects which he knew about."
Mr Le Cheminant added: "He was someone I had a great regard for."
