George Lindsey died yesterday, May 6, 2012.
Actor George Lindsey, who played Goober on “The Andy Griffith Show,” passed away Sunday morning at the age of 83 as the result of a deadly sickness. Lindsey originally lost the role of Gomer Pyle to Jim Nabors but went on to play Goober, a character who was distinguishable from Gomer Pyle only by his crown-shaped Jughead hat, a fact which caused incalculable frustration for children of the Baby Boom. He was by all accounts a kind and thoughtful man with a quick wit where matters of the toilet were concerned. Goober was preceded in death by Barney, Aunt Bee and many others. Rest in peace, scary little Mayberry man.
