Jim Nabors, the man behind Gomer Pyle, dies at age 87

Quote:
Jim Nabors, who portrayed the jovial Gomer Pyle on The Andy Griffith Show before branching out with his own series, died early Thursday morning at his home in Hawaii. He was 87.

Producer Phil Arnone first divulged the news to Hawaii News Now, stating Nabors died around 3 a.m. Nabors had been suffering from poor health for some time. Nabors’ husband, Stan Cadwallader, later confirmed to the Associated Press.

Born in Alabama in 1930, Nabors attended the University of Alabama, after which he headed for New York for a brief time to work as a typist for the United Nations. He eventually moved back to the country and, later, further out west on account of his struggles with asthma.

A little sadness today.

Do not tell Lou Ann Poovie that. He was her hero. Her he-man. Her dude. Gomer made her heart sing!

Yeah, Yappi's title calls him "the man behind Gomer Pyle". I'd guess that the man who spent time behind Jim Nabors is mourning now.....

I remember reading the name Lou Ann Poovie was an inside joke. I guess in Great Britian to call someone 'Poovie' was the equillivent of calling someone light in the loafers

His "Back Home in Indiana" made Indiana seem like it might be an interesting place to visit.
