Comedy Genius Ronnie Barker took care of wife and children in his will

Ronnie Barker played half of the dynamic duo in comedy sketch The Two Ronnies, alongside Ronnie Corbett. The beacon of comedic excellence sadly passed away in 2005, aged 76, from heart failure.

He made his acting debut in 1948 as Lieutenant Spicer in a performance of J. M. Barrie’s Quality Street.

He dedicated his career to comedy and was passionate about making others smile and laugh.

In ‘And It’s Goodnight From Him …: The Autobiography of the Two Ronnies’, Ronnie explained: “I want to make people laugh. Never mind about Hamlet. Forget Richard the Second. Give me Charley’s Aunt. My mission in life was now crystal clear.”

His long and illustrious career spanned almost 40 years, before he retired in 1987, although Ronnie did make occasional appearances on TV after this, mainly with Ronnie Corbett.
