He also served for many years on Woodspring District Council and North Somerset Council.
A town council spokesman said: “We are saddened to hear of the death of Cllr Frederick Parsons.
“Councillor Parsons served on Weston Town Council since 2011, but before that he served for many years on North Somerset Council and Woodspring Borough Council.
