Family of Guys ‘N’ Dolls singer Dominic Grant said he passed away at the age of 71.
A statement issued on behalf of the late Dominic’s wife reads: “It is with great sadness that I must tell you that I lost my beloved Dominic, suddenly on Wednesday 18 November, due to an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
“He was a wonderful husband, father, brother and new found. My heart is broken.
“He was gentle, strong, and enduring the life and spirit of the party. His distinct and beautiful voice would last forever – I would never have loved him more nor knew exactly what our family would do without him … He was our shining star.”
Dominic is best known for being part of Guys ‘N’ Dolls, a hit pop group in the 1970s.
He was also a son-in-law to late host Bruce Forsyth, who was Julia Forsyth’s father-in-law.
Julia was also in the band, which started gaining huge following in the late 1970s.
Their singles include There’s A Lot of Love You Shouldn’t Say You Love Me, and they both break into the UK’s top 10.
After the six-piece set go their separate ways, Dominic and Julia decide to go on stage together.
Off stage, Dominic had a deep passion for sculpture.
He had exhibited his work in Amsterdam, Marbella, Monte Carlo and Mayfair in London.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Sir Bruce’s father-in-law in entertainment, Dominic crafted a pure bronze bust for him in 2005.
Sir Bruce passed away in 2017.
Dominic dedicated one of his works, a statue of King George IV, to the coastal town of Ramsgate in Kentish, to mark the 200th anniversary of the King’s making the only royal harbor in the United Kingdom.
The installation work is expected in September next year.
