He was taken to Bedford Hospital after requiring help with his breathing on Sunday.
He was knighted for his efforts in July and the Queen has recognised "the inspiration he provided for the whole nation and others across the world".
Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps said knowing him was an "absolute honour and privilege".
And added he was: "A true gent. They don't make them like that anymore. His extraordinary life and fundraising work will live on and help many many others."
