Welsh Tv star Stan Stennett has died aged 88.
Stennett passed away in the early hours of Tuesday (26Nov13) at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. He had reportedly battled ill health since suffering a stroke three years ago, according to the Bbc.
His son, Ceri Stennett, says, "My dad was a showman through and through. When the final curtain fell he would want people to remember him as someone who tried to spread as much happiness as he possibly could. He was one of those people who could spread happiness throughout the country - not just Wales but much further afield."
Stennett began his career in entertainment during World War Two, playing guitar in a jazz quintet. He then took on a career as a comedian/actor and appeared in several Tv shows including hit U.K. dramas Coronation Street, Casualty and Crossroads.
He was a close friend of legendary U.K. funnyman Eric Morecambe and he hosted the star's final comedy show in 1982. Morecambe collapsed backstage at the gig after suffering a heart attack and died hours later.
