At his inquest opening on Thursday, Norfolk Coroner's Court heard Mr Spicer had been on holiday when he sustained a traumatic head injury as a result of a fall.
His medical cause of death was given as aspiration pneumonia, subarachnoid haemorrhage - a stroke caused by bleeding into the space surrounding the brain - and Parkinson's disease.
Senior coroner for Norfolk Jacqueline Lake told the court Mr Spicer was born on September 10, 1942, in Harrow, Middlesex, and was a retired underwriter.
