Sir Patrick Moore
I'm sure elReg will do an article on him, but meanwhile - so long, Sir Patrick, and thanks.
Will never forget ...
... on being asked why he had never married (Desert Island Discs, I think) he mentioned his fiancee, Lorna, who drove ambulances in WWII. Unfortunately she was killed by a bomb and no-one else was ever good enough. Such a profound expression of loss in such a blunt statement.
I think he was a truly remarkable man, made more so by his blissful ignorance of his own greatness.
Farewell to a great man.
