Andy Griffith died today at the age of 86. The folksy comedian and star of the 1960’s show entitled “ The Andy Griffith Show” played a wise and good-humored sheriff of Mayberry. He also was the star of Matlock in the 1980’s & 1990’s where he played a folksy defense lawyer.
Andy Griffith’s characters were wise and wholesome, and a throwback to a simpler time. He will be missed.
