George A. Cooper was a great character actor. He was terrific in all of his Avengers appearances. He also appeared in some of my favourite sit-coms such as Steptoe and Son, Sykes, Rising damp and Some mothers do ave em. He lived to be a good age, 93, the same age as Patrick Macnee. RIP. Rich.

I was reminded of him a few weeks ago when there was a thread about the oldest surviving Avengers actors and I was going to post a reply back then.

He lived very near me (Ramsdean in Hampshire) and I used to see him occasionally around town, although not in the last few years. Sad to hear of his passing, he was by all accounts a kind and gentle man. R.I.P.

There's a nice interview with him about his career here:
