Terry Jones, one of the members of Monty Python, has died at 77. 

The Welsh comedian and actor lived with dementia, according to his agent. In a statement from his family, they said, “We have all lost a kind, funny, warm, creative and truly loving man.”

Stephen Fry, amongst others, has paid tribute, saying, “Farewell, Terry Jones. The great foot has come down to stamp on you. My god what a pleasure you gave, what untrammelled joy and delight. What a wonderful talent, heart and mind,”

Sir Michael Palin said, “Terry was one of my closest, most valued friends. He was kind, generous, supportive and passionate about living life to the full.

He was far more than one of the funniest writer-performers of his generation, he was the complete Renaissance comedian – writer, director, presenter, historian, brilliant children’s author, and the warmest, most wonderful company you could wish to have.”

Jones passed away on Tuesday evening with his wife, Anna Soderstrom, by his side.
