Gomer Pyle passes ...
Jim Nabors, best known as "Gomer Pyle" has died... he was 87 ...
I always watched Gomer Pyle when I was a kid. He drove Sgt Carter crazy. RIP Jim.
SHAZAM! RIP Jim. You made me laugh.
Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!
I think he started on Mayberry RFD.
He was also a Great singer.
Prayers for his husband and family......
You hit on a good point.
Nabors always seemed to be a decent and honorable person. So much to the consternation of the CF libs, no one gave a hoot when we learned he swung the other way.
I wasn't trying to hit on any point Kyle... just sending thoughts and prayers out to his loved ones....
You have proven my point.
Yessir.... Loved Gomer Pyle as a kid. Sgt Carter... Frank Sutton... died of a heart attack at 51 back in 1974......
He was my grandmother's favorite singer.
The man definitely had some pipes.
I never could stand the caricatures he played, same with Steve Martin. Just too corny.
R I P Mr. Nabors.
He used to give a Christmas Concert in Honolulu every year for charities. His voice was made for so many of those Christmas songs. RIP.
