Retired English professor. Youthful for his age but showing signs of slowing down; a touch of arthritis, heart palpitations and a declining memory. He can be a charming gentleman one minute and a cantankerous curmudgeon the next. He has a dry sharp wit and frequently weaves confusing mental circles around others in a game of one-upmanship. He is very much in love with Ethel.
