I remember him in a particularly funny scene of Chelmsford 123 when Rory McGrath says "Pretend you're at a feast" and Lewis starts scoffing an imaginary meal :)

David Ogden Stiers who played Major Winchester in M.A.S.H.

One of those actors that you know immediately without really knowing who he is as he was in everything.

That's sad news on both counts.

Jim Bowen was actually a decent stand up comedian. RIP. :(

I also liked the fact Stephen Hawking had a sense of humour, some examples here.
