What a shame, great character nice bloke.
Have to say thanks for the news, sad as it is. Never even knew untill i read it here.
He made a difference
A sad loss..... rest in peace
Sad news. Saw him many times jogging in Roundhay*, waving back to every passing car's beep. True oddball, but true legend. RIP, Sir.
*Him jogging obviously, not me.
I met Jimmy many times and also read his autobiography. A great bloke with a big heart and soul who really did care about his fellow man.
But before that like many of us started out as a coal miner at South Kirkby Colliery in Yorkshire.
A true Yorkshireman who will be very sadly missed
R.I.P. a childhood legend for me Top Bloke

I bet the journalists are sharpening their knives right know, not sure i want to know all the gory details.
R.I.P, a legend.
It wont sell any more newspapers to me. I will have my own mini boycott of any mud slinging dead trees.
He once pulled up on the forecourt of a garage I was working in the showroom of in the 70s, and as he got out of his new XJS, which was one of the first I'd seen, he pointed at the car, pointed at me and held three fingers up, as he mouthed what I thought was "three minutes". I gave him an approving thumbs up, and carried on. He banged on the window to get my attention again, and repeated the gesticulations, and clearly mouthed "Three quid?" As I jokingly ran towards him with my hand in my pocket, he gave a cheeky grin and ran off!
I've been waiting for a celebrity to pass away so I could pay my respects here, and Jim has fixed it for me! RIP.
