"Life Lessons from Onslow"

The character of 'Onslow', on the BBC's hit sitcom,
"Keeping Up Appearances", was played by Geoffery Hughes.

Hughes was a veteran BBC actor, who finally found his niche' in this role, a very laid-back, cockneyed- Brit of vast knowledge, yet little else~
In 1996, Hughes was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and in 2010 he suffered a cancer relapse which led him to retire from acting. 
He died from the illness, aged 68, on July 27, 2012...

the same year in which I was first diagnosed with the same disease in May.

Thus, he is one of my heroes.
