Monty Python star Terry Jones has died at the age of 77, his family said in a statement on Wednesday. The actor, comedy writer, director and author was diagnosed with dementia in 2015. Jones’ wife and three children said they had lost “a kind, funny, warm, creative and truly loving man whose uncompromising individuality, relentless intellect and extraordinary humor has given pleasure to countless millions across six decades.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Jones’ fellow Python Michael Palin told the U.K. news agency Press Association: “He was far more than one of the funniest writer-performers of his generation, he was the complete Renaissance comedian — writer, director, presenter, historian, brilliant children’s author, and the warmest, most wonderful company you could wish to have.”
Fellow comedy stars and writers including Stephen Fry, Neil Gaiman and “The Usual Suspects” screenwriter Chris McQuarrie led tributes to Jones Wednesday.
The magnificent Terry Jones has died.
It the only thing he ever did that wasn’t funny.
Thank you for my gloriously misspent youth, Sir. And Godspeed.

36 years ago I met Terry Jones. I was meant to interview him. I asked for tea, so he opened a bottle of Chablis & got me drunk. He was funny, brilliant and honest. He was irrepressible and is seen here repressing the very young me. Rest in Peace, Terry. You were an inspiration. pic.twitter.com/fNBJZwOFcX

Farewell, Terry Jones. The great foot has come down to stamp on you. My god what pleasure you gave, what untrammelled joy and delight. What a wonderful talent, heart and mind
