Rest In Peace, America’s Sheriff.

The man who kept the peace in the quirky town of Mayberry has passed away.

Andy Griffith who starred in the self-titled show about a man who was sheriff by day, keeping order in the town, and a single dad by night, rearing his son Opie in the right direction has died.

Griffith & Ron Howard

The show was a hit for eight seasons on CBS.

Ron Howard, Griffith’s TV son, tweeted:

Griffith would later play, attorney at law, Ben Matlock in the 1980s.

Griffith was 86.

Also several actors, who worked with him, remember the man they called friend.

Andy Griffith & Barbara Eden

Barbara Eden, who played the manicurist in a episode of ‘The Andy Griffith Show,‘ remembers Andy.

Paul Campbell, co-star in Griffith’s last film, reflects on Andy.

Josh’s Note: Thanks for the laughs. Thanks for the lessons.

Rest in Peace, America’s Sheriff—Sheriff Andy Taylor.

P.S. Stumbled across this really nice tribute, ‘What Andy Griffith Means To Me,’ from a fan and thought I would share it.
