Personal Quote:

[in his last interview from 2013] I would like to be remembered as a good father. A good husband. A good brother. A good friend. A good man. But that is simply not going to happen. Like it or not I have reached the point of infamy when I am going to be remembered simply as 'Ronnie Biggs', whatever or whoever he is in your mind. See more »


A series of strokes, heart attacks and pneumonia left him confined to a wheelchair and completely reliant on the nursing home. He was unable to speak and used a spelling board to communicate. He died in the Carlton Court Care Home in Barnet (London, England, UK). See more »
