Andy Griffith R.I.P. at 86

Legendary TV and film actor Andy Griffith passed away this morning at the age of 86. Best remembered for his iconic television show, The Andy Griffith Show, the series was known for its take on small town life and legendary whistling theme song. Born in Mt. Airy, N.C. Andy started his showbiz career in 1949 and continued to work up through 2008. Though he was best known for his name-sake television series that launched the careers of Don Knotts and Ron Howard, Andy found success in the 1980s thru the ’90s with the legal drama Matlock. TV reruns just won’t be the same anymore…
