Robert Fyfe: Last of the Summer Wine actor dies at 90

"Actor Robert Fyfe, best known for playing Howard in sitcom Last of the Summer Wine for 25 years, has died at the age of 90."

“Fyfe joined the long-running BBC show in 1985 and remained until its final episode in 2010.”

I didn’t regularly follow Last of the Summer Wine but did find some of it funny when I did see it.

RIP Robert Fyfe

Oh I recognise him…yes, I’ve seen Last of the Summer Wine on occasion too. Very sad news. :frowning:

RIP Robert.I used to watch it when he was in his 40’s.

He had a great part in Last of the Summer Wine.
RIP Robert Fyfe.

Sad news. I watched last of, for the first few years & enjoyed it, but it went on for too long. But I recognise him. He was I believe, the husband of Kathy Staff in the series.

Before he found his niche in LOTSW, he was a very good jobbing actor and appeared in nine films as well as several TV series in various roles. 90 was a good innings, but the loss of his wife a few weeks previously probably sped his departure :cry: RIP Bobs.
