2. He wrote a touching letter to a family whose father had died
On the 29th May, life-long Only Fools and Horses fan Keith Drew passed away after suffering with myeloid leukaemia. His family decided that a funeral theme of the classic sitcom would be a fitting tribute – this particular service provided by funeral directors, Only Fools and Hearses.

Keith Drew’s daughter, Joanna contacted Sir David Jason’s agent telling him of the funeral that was planned for her father. In response, Jason sent this wonderful letter via email:

The letter is incredibly touching. The well wishes, the mention of Only Fools writer John Sullivan and there also a light hearted reference to one of the episodes in which the Trotter brother bury their Grandad.
“I hope that Friday goes smoothly and that you are all pleased with the fitting tribute paid by your family and friends in your Dad’s memory. If the Vicar is wearing a hat, tell him to keep an eye on it. I am sure your Dad would appreciate that thought”
