Jim Nabors AKA "Gomer Pyle" Has Died

posted by Tammy Daye -

Jim Nabors, the actor who played Gomer Pyle has died. The character was introduced on "The Andy Griffith Show" and later was given his own show "Gomer Pyle" The two shows ran in the 60's but thanks to reruns in syndication I was able to watch and loved both shows. Nabors was also an accomplished singer and comedian. He seemingly "disappeared" from the public eye and little more was heard about Nabors until actor Rock Hudson died in 1985 of AIDS and rumors circulated that two actors were secretly married to one another...well that proved to be false but the actor, who admitedly was gay, spent the last years of his life living in Hawaii with his longtime partner of 40 years.

May your rest be peaceful....
