Norman Wisdom dies at the age of 95

Published by: BBC News (bbc.co.uk/news/entertainmen)

Comic actor Sir Norman Wisdom has died aged 95, his son has confirmed.

The London-born star was known for his slapstick film roles in the 1950s and 1960s, famously playing Norman Pitkin against frustrated

boss Mr Grimsdale.

Sir Norman became a cult figure in Albania, where his were the only films from the West allowed in the country.

His family said he died at a nursing home on the Isle of Man on Monday evening, having suffered a series of strokes over the past six months.

Sir Norman Wisdom was renowned for a string of comic roles

A statement said: “Sir Norman Wisdom has today passed away at Abbotswood Nursing Home on the Isle of Man.

“Over the last six months Norman has sustained a series of strokes causing a general decline in both his physical and mental health.

“He had maintained a degree of independence until a few days ago. However, over the last few days his condition rapidly declined. He was in no pain or distress and peacefully passed over at 1846 on 4 October.”

The family asked for time to grieve a “much loved father and grandfather”.

‘Delightful man’

Lyricist Sir Tim Rice, who worked with Sir Norman later on in his career, said: “He was a childhood hero of mine, when I was at school.

“So it was very exciting to find that he was one of the few childhood heroes that really lived up to being met in real life. He was just a delightful man, and very funny.”

Sir Norman, who was knighted in 2000, was renowned for a string of comic roles and Charlie Chaplin described him as his favourite clown.

His later work included the recurring role of Billy Ingleton in the long-running BBC comedy Last of the Summer Wine.

Phil Day, who had been his publicist since 1969, said Sir Norman was a “lovely man” who was “100% professional”.

He said: “He never turned down any request. He never threw a tantrum. He was 100% professional all of the time.

“Of all the artists I’ve ever worked with, he’s been the closest. It’s a sad day.”

THANK YOU – ARB

Arnel and his friends

Hello,

Thanks po sa lahat ng mga taong bumati noong aking kaarawan – BUYanihan Team, Easy Pha-max PH, SMilDS MY, Platform2u PH at sa mga FB Friends ko, kasama na dito ang pagpapasalamat ko sa aking mga magulang dahil nabigyan ako ng pagkakataon at kung hindi dahil sa kanila wala ako dito at kung hindi nila ako naalagaan ng maayos marahil malabo akong maging edukado. Bukod sa aking mga magulang eh lubos ko rin pinasasalamatan ang aking mga lolo’t lola ko sa pagtataguyod nyo sa aking pag-aaral habang buhay ko po kayong pasasalamatan. Ngunit higit sa lahat sa Poong Maykapal na nagbigay sa aking buhay.

Ang mabuhay sa mundong ito ay hindi biro dahil sa mga pagsubok na pagdadaanan ng bawat isa ngunit sa pagsubok na ito dito ako natututo unti unti pero naging masaya ako sa mga pagsubok ko dahil alam kong kasama ko ang pamilya ko at ang Panginoon na gagabay sa akin bawat oras.

Salamat,
Arnel Mon Viel Bautista
