(He sang in the car and loved to recite from Shakespeare, the Bible & the poets. An avid reader, with a particular fondness for biographies of the stars of Hollywood’s golden era. He enjoyed horse and dog racing, good food & drink. He was a self-made man with  a dynamic personality -- his father died when he was a child and he left school at 13. He had a wealth of sayings/expressions that live on and carry his memory: “Let it be soon”; “Put that in your sky”; “Mark my card”; “Last him a lifetime”; ‘Set out your stall”; “First is first, second is nowhere”; “Let’s keep the party clean”; “It’s not a bad life”… “Marvellous!”)
