One of Bromley's most popular personalities has died suddenly.
Millionaire entrepreneur and local impresario Terry Williams was taken ill at his home, in Cudham Road, Downe, on March 4.
He died at the Princess Royal Hospital, Farnborough, two days later, aged 79.
Hundreds of people will remember Terry as the man who converted the derelict Bromley Lido, in Baths Road, into a successful health and fitness club, before selling it for £1.5m eleven years later.
He had a talent for acrobatics, and 1957 performed with Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews in My Fair Lady in the West End.
He appeared in and wrote many more shows, both in the West End and locally, and also performed stunts in movies, including The Pink Panther and You Only Live Twice.
Son Marco Williams, 50, from Knockholt, said: "He was a fantastic man.
"He came up from nowhere, a working class family, and achieved such a lot by working hard.
"He was very good at what he did but also taught a lot of people what he knew.
"He helped many, many people. Everyone that knew him loved him."
His funeral will be held at St Mary's Church, High Street, Downe on Friday (March 21).
