One of the last remaining of his "comedic generation", a Gentleman, a talented man, and one who will be greatly missed.
Rest Well Eric Sykes, Sir: You have Earned that Final Curtain Call beyond the Pearly Gates.

Kind and Respectful Regards, Uyraell.

Well I didn't realize until today that Dudley Moore played the Organ.
...I've never liked the Organ.

Possibly my favorite comic.
Sykes movie credits are almost as impressive as his Comedy career.
I especially liked him as Police Sergeant Dogge in "Theatre of Blood"
