Jim Nabors, the Cheerful Gomer Pyle on Two TV Series, Dies at 87 (https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/jim-nabors-dead-gomer-pyle-andy-griffith-show-star-was-87-1008103)

Nabors died at his home in Hawaii on Thursday morning, his longtime partner told the Associated Press.

A native of Alabama, Nabors also recorded more than two dozen albums with a rich, operatic baritone voice that surprised those who were used to hearing him exclaim "Gawwwleee!" with a Southern twang on television. For many years, Nabors sang "Back Home Again in Indiana" during the opening ceremonies for the Indianapolis 500.

He used to have a pretty nice shack (read: mansion) down in Whitefish, MT.

Andy of Mayberry hit a sort of zenith when he and Don Knotts were on during the same season.

True. I liked both their roles. A true loss. :-(

He actually had quite a wonderful singing voice with some recordings as mentioned above, but he never never really became famous because of them.
