I think a lot of us on this forum are old enough to remember him. |
Fox News is reporting that the man who played the character Goober on The Andy Griffith Show, Mayberry RFD, and Hee Haw, George Lindsey, has passed away. He was 83 years old. George passed away after a brief illness. Funeral arrangements are still pending.
George joined the cast of the Andy Griffith Show after Jim Nabors’ character “Gomer Pyle” left the program. George continued playing the character until the early 1990′s when Hee Haw ended its run in syndication.
George had multiple other roles on TV and in movies, including as a voice actor for Disney.
I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.
