The 2016 Death March continues.... :-(

Andrew Sachs, bumbling Manuel from Fawlty Towers, dead at 86



Andrew Sachs, the British actor best known as the lovable Spanish waiter Manuel on the 1970s BBC sitcom Fawlty Towers, has died aged 86.

Sachs, who played a waiter from Barcelona on the series co-created by Monty Python star John Cleese, died on Nov. 23, his wife Melody told the Daily Mail.

Sachs, who was diagnosed with dementia four years ago, was buried in North London on Thursday.

Cleese, 77, tweeted that he was very sad to learn of the death and called Sachs "a very sweet, gentle, and kind man and a truly great farceur."​

Aw, I am so sorry to know that. Fawlty Towers has been my very favourite for many years and I spend every Christmas season re-wathing every episode on the full set DVD I have.
