Derek Hinds, chairman of Cromer RNLI management group, said: "Richard will be missed by all in his role at the station and we wish him well in his other commitments, but we know Richard will always be part of Cromer RNLI now and in the future.
"We are all saddened at Richard stepping down. We could have not had a more dedicated man who has given service not only to Cromer RNLI but to the RNLI in general."
In his role, Mr Leeds was responsible for the RNLI all-weather and inshore lifeboat stations, the crew, and the day-to day-operations working with the coxswains.
