A TV great from an oldie-but-goodie, The Andy Griffith Show, has passed away. George Lindsey died yesterday at the age of 83.
George joined the hit show as Goober Pyle in 1964. He also played the character on Hee Haw from 1971 until 1993.
According to GossipCop, in a statement, Andy Griffith said: “George Lindsey was my friend. I had great respect for his talent and his human spirit. In recent years, we spoke often by telephone. Our last conversation was a few days ago…. I am happy to say that as we found ourselves in our 80s, we were not afraid to say, ‘I love you.’ That was the last thing George and I had to say to each other. ‘I love you.’”
May he rest in peace.
