For those who didn't know who he was I have included a link to his Obituary. He was much like Marmite you either loved him or hated him. He was much like the office clown who joked and played the fool at every occasion even if that occasion wasn't appropriate. But what you can't say bad about him is that he worked nearly right up until his death at the age of 95 only in the last year did he go into a rest home.
It must be amazing to have such a hold on a nation that when they hear the words "Mr Grimsdale" They instantly recognise who you are, and that you have become ingrained into a nations conscience. I found him funny as a kid but then I grew up. Maybe growing up isn't all what it is cracked up to be and we should all stay young at heart like Norman Wisdom did.
