Thunderbirds' fans FAB farewell to Gerry Anderson
January 11, 2013
A replica of Lady Penelope's pink Rolls Royce pulled up outside Reading Crematorium as hundreds of mourners said farewell to Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson today.
Mr Anderson, who also produced hit TV shows Captain Scarlet, Stingray and Joe 90, died peacefully in his sleep on Boxing Day aged 83.
His coffin arrived with a replica of Thunderbird 2 made out of flowers on top and arrangements of the Thunderbirds and Stingray theme tunes were played.
Mr Anderson, of Nuffield, Oxfordshire, had suffered from Alzheimer's since 2010 which had become worse in the months leading up to his death.
