Stan Stennett's son, Ceri - who appeared with him in pantomimes - described his father as 'a special part of peoples' lives.'
He always had time for the underdog. The common touch is not something that everyone had, but he had it in spade loads. He genuinely always had time for people.
Speaking about his father's time performing with the likes of Morecambe and Wise, Mr Stennett said: "They had a huge amount of fun as young men coming into the industry. It's nice to think he's with them now."
