Gerry Anderson known the world over as the film and television producer of Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Space:1999 amongst many others, died at the age of 83 on 26th December 2012.

Gerry was diagnosed with mixed dementia in 2012 and his condition worsened quite dramatically over the next six months. Having already decided with his family on a care home for himself not long after diagnosis, he moved in there in October 2012.

Until just a few months before his death Gerry Anderson remained interested and involved in the film industry, keen to re-visit some of his earlier successes using the latest technology available. His last producer credit came in 2005 on New Captain Scarlet, a CGI-animated re-imagining of his 1967 Supermarionation series, which premiered on ITV in the UK. Most recently he worked as a consultant on a Hollywood remake of his 1969 series UFO, directed by Matthew Gratzner.

He also worked as a celebrity ambassador for The Alzheimer’s Society, helping to raise awareness of the disease and much-needed funds for the society.

He was very keen that if people wished to celebrate his life, or his contribution to television and entertainment in any way - that they should donate money to the Alzheimer's Society in his memory.

Gerry leaves three children from former marriages, Joy, Linda and Gerry Junior, his son Jamie and widow Mary.

Mary and Jamie continue to work on Gerry Anderson legacy projects, and fundraise for the Alzheimer's Society.
