It was sad to hear that the popular Actor Andy Griffith died today at the age of 86. He was most known for his hit TV series “The Andy Griffith Show” and in the later years “Matlock.
Many will fondly remember laughing during his unique and funny sitcom filmed back in the 60’s. As he worked as the loveable Sheriff Andy Taylor in a charming fictional town called Mayberry, we all fell in love with his character. He later went on to star in and produce another hit television show, “Matlock”.
His close friend Bill Friday confirmed that Griffith died at his Dare County home around 7:00 a.m. this morning. The cause of death has not yet been released.
Andy Griffith will be missed…but his classic role as America’s favorite Sheriff will live on forever in out minds. It’s funny how you can still watch his timeless show and have a laugh even today.
