    This one makes me a bit sad. I really liked him on "The Andy Griffith Show" and he was great on his own spin off, "Gomer Pyle USMC." Gave me a lot of laughs back in the day. He always seemed to be a gentle soul. RIP.

    Watched him growing up. He was a hoot. He had a great voice. I can remember him singing Back Home In Indiana at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Rest in Peace.

    He played that role to perfection. I remember watching interviews with him, such a gentleman. Beautiful singing voice, my Mum loved his records. RIP Jim.

    Nothing against Goober, but Mayberry just wasn't the same without Gomer.
    I never missed Gomer Pyle, USMC either.

    RIP, Jim.

    It was entertaining watching him on GP but after a few times it became a novelty. I guess he was a good singer if you like that style. I didn't so I didn't listen much yo it although I would say he did a good job with the Indiana song

    Not many of the characters from youth left. Most who are were young themselves at the time. Barbara Eden still hanging around. (she never looked better than her AG episode)

    Was sort of curious who was left outside of Ron Howard. Betty Lynn (Thelma Lou) is still around as is Elinor Donahue but she was sort of a late addition and wasn't in that many episodes. It's kind of interesting that Jim was only in 23.

    Jack Burns is still here (Deputy Warren) but again, a late edition only in a few episodes. A few other smaller roles.

    This one caught me by surprise, although at his age I shouldn't have been. I always liked him. Another piece of my childhood is gone.

    Fortunately I haven't read any obit that mentions the Jim Nabors/Rock Hudson "marriage" rumor, the obits seem to be treating him with dignity.

    "Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!" Funny on GP-USMC, but I never cared for his singing.

    "Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!" in a completely different context?
