The chief executive of Alzheimer's Society has said that Gerry Anderson was an "outstanding supporter" of the charity.
Jeremy Hughes said:
Gerry Anderson has been an outstanding supporter of Alzheimer's Society and campaigner on behalf of people with dementia.
He was determined, despite his own recent diagnosis, to spend the last year of his life speaking out for others living with dementia to ensure their voices were heard and their lives improved.
With the support of his family, Gerry tirelessly attended events around the country to raise awareness of the condition and to raise funds for a cure.
