This makes me so sad.
You don't expect to hear of deaths of anyone you actually knew, of being taken this way.
Tim's brother, Martin, who died some years ago, saw my divorce through some 31yrs ago. The company was started by their father but Tim was never cut out to be a lawyer. He married his wife, Christine at the back end of the 60's and had 50+ years happy marriage. 2 sons and 5, maybe 6 grandchildren survive him.
During his time with The Goodies he made millions of us smile.
