British Tv Writer Ronnie Wolfe Dies

British TV writer Ronnie Wolfe has died after falling down a flight of stairs at his home in London. He was 89.
Wolfe took a tumble on Thursday (15Dec11), hitting his head, and he lost his fight for life on Sunday (18Dec11), according to his son-in-law Arif Hussein.
The writer is best known for his work on popular 1960s U.K. TV sitcom On The Buses, which ran for four years until 1973.
Wolfe created several other comedies, including 1970s Bbc show The Rag Trade, with writing partner Ronald Chesney, who has paid tribute to his pal.
He says, "We were together 50 years - it's like losing my brother."
Wolfe's wife Rose adds, "It has been a really, really sad last few days and a quite horrendous and totally unexpectedly sad end for a guy who was so funny in life. He was the most incredible husband and we had 58 years of superb marriage harmony."
