We in California have just began having the ability to see some of these British stars in shows you have had for decades, it is a shame to lose them just when we get access to their work! Wonderful Actor!!!
Thank You! You will live on in your art.

Reg was a truly great performer in the old sense of the word. Don't forget he was a terrific pianist as well as comic and comic actor. On the Buses combined a combustive cast of characters who were bound to create comic tension between themselves. The character of Stan was brilliantly played by Reg to show a basically decent bloke who has to rub along with his workmate, boss and brother-in-law - all played brilliantly by the actors concerned - and also look after his mum and put up with living with his sister and her baby in the house. He does his best to get by and get some fun and laughs on the way. Watching the show now, it's still funny because basically it's rooted in reality and audiences can relate to the situations and characters. Is it pc? No. Is it high-brow? No. Is it funny? YES. And guess what - that's what a comedy show is supposed to do - make us laugh!
Only Blakey hated Butler. The audience loved him!

I first remember seeing Reg Varney in "The Rag Trade" when I was a small child. I loved "On The Buses" he was a wonderful comedy actor with great comic timing. I also saw him in a short film "The Best Pair Of Legs In Showbusiness", this was one of his best performances. He gave much laughter to many people, a wonderful contribution.

I have recently been watching the `re-runs` of the programme on digital television. I saw them first time around!
They were great fun - lovely innocent humour, and Stan and his pals at the omnibus depot always had an `angle`- usually `Blakey` was the target.
I will always fondly remember these times - the programmes take me back to a lovely period, not only in my life, but in many others, when the world was a different place than it is today - there is NO comparison with this effort and today`s rubbish that is foisted upon us!
I watch all the repeats of this era.
Reg was a great ambassador - I can still see him now, on a variety show of the time, playing a piano, with a sheet over the keys - he was a fine musician too.
His `like` will never be seen again - rest well dear Reg - you`ve definitely earned it.
