So Long Andy Griffith! Iconic Actor Dead at 86 


Andy Griffith, the American icon who gave us The Andy Griffith Show among others, has passed away on Tuesday morning in Dare County, North Carolina. He was 86.

According to WITN, Dare County Sheriff Dough Doughtie confirmed that an ambulance went to the actor's home at 7 a.m. this morning. Griffith's friend, Bill Friday, also confirmed the sad news to the website.

Besides The Andy Griffith Show, the actor also made a mark with Elia Kazan's "A Face in the Crowd," and with the long-running whodunit, "Matlock." But we will always remember Mister Andy Griffith as we visit with him in Mayberry along with Opie (Ron Howard) and Barney Fife (Don Knotts).
