Ninety-two-year-old Frank Thornton died peacefully in his sleep on Saturday.
Frank was a much loved British actor who played mainly comedy roles and is perhaps best known for his role as Captain Peacock in Are You Being Served? and latterly as Truly in Last Of The Summer Wine.
Frank is survived by Beryl, his wife of 67 years, daughter Jane and their three grandchildren.
I have been Frank's agent since 1986 and he has been the most wonderful client as well as being a great friend. He will be sorely missed.
