For many years we lived close by him, met him a number of times and found him a very personable and likeable guy, no pretensions and brimming with energy.
He adopted the IOM as his home and was well loved and appreciated. He will be sorely missed.
One of his best roles was in the film " the night they raided Minsky's" well worth a look to see him in a non comedy role.
loved him.he made some fabulous unforgeable films..belly laughs every one of them
im a clumsy person that always gets entangled in cables ,or falls over a feather....and i always call them my 'Norman Wisdom' moments.
