Michael Sheard (1940-2005)

It is our sad duty to inform everyone that our dear friend Michael Sheard has passed away at his home on the Isle of Wight.
A message from Ros Sheard: "My darling husband died on August 31st. He will be sadly missed and he loved you all."
We also learned from Michael's son, Simon via his official site at www.michaelsheard.com that before he passed on, Michael made a request to have the following message posted on his website for all his friends:
"Thank you my Very Dear Chums - See ya."

We provided the machines for this occasion, with many Star Wars actors attending, and a pleasant surprise when Jonathan, our Managing Director was met by the Lady Maress of Bristol!

Here Jonathan meets Micheal Sheard, otherwise know as 'Admiral Ozzell' from Star Wars, and of course 'Mr Bronson' from Grange Hill!
