Jim Nabors, the comic actor best known for his years playing Gomer Pyle, one of TV's most lovable goofs, has died at the age of 87.
After two years on the Griffith show, Nabors was given his own sitcom, "Gomer Pyle, USMC", with Gomer enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps. Through it all, he remained pure of heart, sunny of disposition and simple of mind.
He also was an accomplished singer, who recorded 28 albums and scored 5 gold and 1 platinum records.
