Saw this on another site I visit. Seems Jones had been suffering from a very aggressive form of dementia for a few years and it had gotten so bad of late that it even robbed him of his ability to speak.

He's now the 2nd member of that famed Troupe to pass away and made it to age 77. Graham Chapman, another of the original members of the cast of Monty Python passed away at age 48 from cancer.

RIP Terry Jones

This makes me feel very sad. As a kid, my friends and I would spend entire weekends alternating between playing D&D and guffawing uncontrollably at Monty Python sketches. The news of his passing makes me feel old.

I was a teen when they started out and watching their Flying Circus episodes on the local PBS station was a must for me.      Some of the sketches were flat out silly, but many were comedic genius and it was my first real exposure to British comedy, which I've grown to love over the years.

Let's face it, we're all getting older.     Cleese is now 80, Gilliam is 79 and Palin and Idle are both 76.

That just breaks my heart to hear that. Terry Jones was an amazing writer, director in his own right, and those sketches. Crunchy Frog, Spam, Mr. Creosote.

We'll miss him. May he rest easy.

RIP Mr Jones. Dementia is a horrible nightmare of a disease, and watching people slowly go downhill is heartbreaking.

On the live show with Graham Norton around 2013 he was having trouble with his words even then, maybe the first signs of it.
