I know that 92 is a good run but still: Thornton made millions laugh during the very long run of Are You Being Served? (along with its sequel series Grace & Favour) and he will be sorely missed. Of the original cast, only Nicholas Smith - who played Mr. Rumbold - is still with us.
Frank Thornton leaves behind his wife of 67 years. I found that to be pretty dang remarkable in this day and age.
So in honoring his memory, as well as that of the rest of the wacky crew at Grace Brothers Department Store who have taken the elevator up, here is one of the many classic episodes of Are You Being Served? From March 13th 1975 it's "Up Captain Peacock"...
