George Lindsey, aka Goober Pyle, dies at 83
George "Goober" Lindsey, most widely known for playing Goober Pyle on the iconic television series The Andy Griffith Show, died Sunday in Nashville after an extended hospitalization. He was 83.
As long as his health allowed, he was still making people smile. The Hee Haw star showed up at Ray Stevens' CD release party Feb. 28 at The Rutledge to lend support to his good friend and fellow comedian. Stevens beamed from the stage as he thanked Lindsey for being there.http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/obit/story/2012-05-06/goober-pyle-george-lindsey-obit/54787304/1
The Andy Griffith Show is one of my all-time favorite sitcoms and George Lindsey's "Goober" was one of the characters who made it a little more enjoyable, especially he and Don Knotts' interactions.
Lord, have mercy!
