Rest In Peace, Gorden Kaye

English actor Gorden Kaye, who was best known for his role in the British comedy 'Allo, 'Allo has passed away at age 75. 

While Mr. Kaye's biggest role was in 'Allo, 'Allo, fans of Are You Being Served? should recognize him from the three separate roles he played on the program. In the episode Do You Take This Man? he breaks the news to Mrs. Slocombe that her fiancé is already married. In Mrs. Slocombe, Single Person, he plays an eccentric customer who wishes to purchase a silent jacket to wear to his job as a paparazzo.

In his final and biggest role in the eighth season episode Closed Circuit, he plays a friend of Mr. Humphries who is hired to film video advertising for the store. His tactless behavior requires Mr. Humphries' finesse.
