God bless you, Reg. You always brought a smile to the face of everyone in our family, sometimes when there was so
much bad news it was hard to smile about anything. My brother and I grew up with 'On the buses' and now (many years
later) I own my own "UK Shoppe" and sell On the buses on DVD! God love you Reg and THANK YOU!

I would like to say that I am very upset to hear the
news that Reg Varney has died and how much he was admired by fans across the world.
As a kid I absolutley enjoyed On the Buses and thought
that when he left there was a deep void left there and thats why the show ended when it did.
RIP Reg and God Bless xx

I have been very sick for the last three to four years and the ONLY
thing that has kept me going through operation after operation is putting you in the VHS or DVD and staying sane.

17-11-2008 - 00:49
I think The Telegraph are being a bit harsh in their obituary,I though
the publc had always loved him. Was it really his decision to leave On The Buses? Did his career really collapse or was it
his decision to stop doing film and TV work?
Reg Varney - Comedy actor who achieved stardom in the 1970s television sitcom On the Buses but whose career
In the 1960s and early 1970s he was rarely out of the public eye,
appearing on the television screen in sitcoms such as The Rag Trade and Beggar My Neighbour as well as in 65 episodes of On
the Buses and in three spin-off films.
The public, however, never fully
forgave him for leaving On the Buses. His popularity waned, and his television and film career collapsed.

What a wonderful character Stan was for Reg. He kept Britain smiling throughout
all the grim times during the 1970's.
It's always sad when a much loved actor leaves us; however, his enduring popularity will live on as
we fondly remember Reg Varney - son, workmate, curse of a boyfriend... and actor extraordinaire.

So sad to hear of the passing of Reg Varney. We still watch On the Buses on Sky and on DVD. Hard to imagine Stan
as being 92.. May he rest in peace. He certainly provided hours of laughter to many people.
