Read What She Posted On Her IG Page About Simon Willis – We woke to the news that we have lost our beloved Willy aka Simon Willis and today our family is bereft.
You could say there were three of us in our marriage. And it was the perfect recipe. Me. My husband Steve and Willy. He was my Doctor Who husband, we both loved musical theatre with a passion and together we were complete radio geeks. Steve and Willy were like Morecambe and Wise except I was never sure which was which. I suspect they were both Eric.
Their love for each other was plain for all to see and I have never seen two friends laugh together more than them. Willy was The Godfather to all our children and they completely and utterly adored him. We were blessed to have spent many many precious moments with him throughout our lives together and in recent months and weeks when he was poorly. He celebrated his 30th/40th and 50th birthday at our home and we had a ridiculous amount of fun. I never did meet anyone who knew Nik Kershaw’s back catalogue like Willy.
Willy was a one-off. The funniest man you could ever meet and anyone who knew him will have their own favourite story to tell about ‘What Willy did…’ Godammit Willy… what are we going to do without you??
