I loved watching these old series, sad to hear of his passing but he reached a great age of 92.
Really funny character in the series and he gave much pleasure to likely millions of viewers.
R.I.P.

Ah, that's sad, R.I.P, but at least he had a long, amazing life!

That's not a bad age to reach and then die peacefully in his sleep. May he rest in peace. A great, possibly underrated actor.
