Beloved actor Andy Griffith died this morning at his North Carolina home. He was 86-years old.
It goes without saying. He played loveable father and Mayberry`s sheriff in The Andy Griffith Show from 1960-1968. And who doesn't remember Matlock in the 80's? Grandma's sure thought he was a good lookin' guy!
Griffith had been battling poor health in his later years, undergoing a quadruple heart-bypass surgery in 2000, and hip surgery in 2007.
It certainly is the end of an era.
