Default R.I.P. Andy Griffith

Griffith attended UNC Chapel Hill where he earned a degree in Music. According to IMDb.com, Griffith was a regular on the Ed Sullivan show in the 1950's.

His legacy role, which earned him the title of "America's Favorite Sheriff"on "The Andy Griffith" show, set in fictional Mayberry, put North Carolina on the map in the entertainment industry. The show ran from 1960-1968, propelling a handful of spin-off programs. Griffith also produced and starred in the television series "Matlock."

Griffith received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005 from President George W. Bush.

Griffith was born in Mount Airy, North Carolina.
It's showtime, folks!

yea, but 86 wasnt a short life at all, I hope I make it to 86. Definitely should be more of a celebration of life for him as he contributed more to TV and our childhoods than he realized. Great show, Great Actor Indeed!!

The Andy Griffith Show was and still is one of my favorite shows. Such a gentle and loving show that the whole family could enjoy together.

Andy Griffith was a great actor and a great man. He will always be remembered for his family values. Not many know that Andy also won a Grammy award for an album of gospel music. It is a shame that today there are not more actors with the character of Andy Griffith. He will be dearly missed.



RIP Andy...... thank you for the memories.

I'm heartbroken by his passing. Andy was a great man, and The Andy Griffith Show is one of my all time favorites. I still watch it to this day. It's a sad day. We lost a legend. The world is a lot less bright today without him.

RIP.

As much as I loved you as Sheriff Taylor, I loved you even more as Atlanta defense attorney Benjamin Matlock. RIP Andy and thanks for all of the fond memories.
