Melbourne comedian Dave Grant has died following a battle with pancreatic cancer, aged 50.
He died on Sunday.
“Surrounded by his loving family @ 4.25pm today at his home, my loving partner Dave Grant peacefully past away free of pain and suffering,” his partner Karen Livingstone wrote on Facebook.
Comedians including Peter Helliar and Charlie Pickering also paid tribute to Grant, who performed stand-up routines on several TV variety shows and had guest roles in Neighbours, Stingers and Eagle & Evans.
In December friends and family were concerned for his safety when he went missing after leaving his home, but he was found later that night.
See ya big guy. See you on the Bench again some day… -DK
