However, after his death, his seven best friends had a surprise coming their way. Roger had left them £3,500 to go away for a weekend to a European city of their choice. How nice is that?

Roger, from Swansea, was a regular at the Vivian Arms pub, which was where he'd met Roger Rees, John Harries, Bob Beynon, Gerallt Davies, Peter Pelosi, Ernie Macey and Roy Thomas.

However, although the men had been friends for over 40 years, they had no idea their friend would be so generous after his death.

Roger Rees said: "It was a complete surprise when Roger's son Sam rang a few days after the funeral to inform me his dad had left £3,500 between the seven of us.

"The proviso was that we would all go to a European city for a weekend to spend his bequest."

The seven went to Berlin, where they had an amazing time, raising various pints to their late friend.

Roger added: "We spent most of it on beer - the rest we wasted. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend, graced by beautiful weather, lots of laughs and many memories. Thank you, Roger."
