That was a fairly lengthy obit, and every bit of it was entertaining. I'm glad I now know of this person's life.

/good night, eccentric man

That's a fairly standard opening to a Telegraph obit (since the obit page was taken over and revamped by Hugh Massingberd) - there have been several books of their obits published and they are well worth looking out for, especially the ones devoted to rogues, villains  and eccentrics.
