Vale: George Gaynes

While the start of 2016 wasn’t off to a great start with a handful of treasured musicians departing this mortal coil (Bowie, Frey, Cole), we now turn to the acting world, with everyone’s favourite Police Commandant George Gaynes – leaving this world at a young 98 years. He had a many, many, maaany fan base within.


While known for his work as the goofy Commandant Eric Lassard in all 7 Police Academy films, he also played the foster father to Punky Brewster. Seriously Рhe had a fantastic innings.He had a many, many, maaany fan base within.

Personal favourite: Police Academy 4: Cizzzizizzzens On Patrol.
