I grew up watching Reg Varney on television through the years and became a great fan. I am so sorry to hear that he has passed on but I for one will always remember this great comedy actor. On the buses was one of the best comedy programmes of all time and my box set of the series is one of the greatest things that I own. Thank you Reg and god bless you.

To a great star of the 60s and 70s, There will never be an actor in the class of Reg Varney and a great family member. Will be sadly missed from all ages. U will always make people laugh dead or alive. R.I.P

I grew up watching on the buses when we had a sense of humour in this country before the PC brigade took over.
Im still a big fan, (at 43) and was upset to hear of Reg's death.
God Bless him and all those that he worked with, and his family.
REST IN PEACE REG.
(By the way, does anybody know of the spin off from buses called `dont drink the water'?

To the family of Reg Varney.
I would like to say that I knew Reg Varney, but that would not be the case. However, I did meet him once.
His father, Sid was i'm told a great friend of my grandfather, the late John Tilbury.
Reg I met briefly at my grandfathers funeral, which was in the summer of 1966, although his sister Bella & her husband Alf, I met many times, as they remained friends of my mother & father.
My grandfather, my mother (Edna Tilbury nee Hart), her brother & sisters would often reminisce & talk about the "good old days", when the Varneys & the Tilburys would have family get togethers & enjoy parties that were just the best. Reg & his father Sid would play the piano or the piano accordion, with members of both families singing, dancing & enjoying merriment like I assume we don't have today.
As a child I would often fantisise about how those days must have been. Of course I will never know, but I can still close my eyes & imagine.
My respects to the Varney family. And to Reg wherever you may be. Hold Tight......

Just like to say that I have very fond memories of Reg Varney and On The Buses. I grew up with them and have brought the box set as an adult. If my maths is correct Reg was playing the son of an actress who was only 8 yrs older than himself but some how it worked. It was warm to watch and still remains so. On a cold winters night I love to put an episode or two on with my feet up and some fish and chips in my lap.

Reg had a talent which like many of his time had been hard learnt up and down the country in theatres. Time and hard work sustain talent thats why actors like Reg are remembered. Anna Karen and Stephen Lewis are the only two left of the main cast. People today say its not pc and how did they get away with it. to them I say no, but its real.

Man will always oggle women parents will always disagree with kids and married couples will always argue and thats the way life is. Reg has left the depot but we're still laughing!
