Do not forget his singing 'Back Home Again in Indiana'. He did that opening, for the Indy 500 a total of 37 times.
Ran into him in Hawaii. A nice guy who went out of his way to acknowledge us.
Didn't really know about him singing Back Home Again in Indiana until the first time I went to the Indy 500.
Dude could sing.
Sad he's gone.
So sorry to hear...
I was just talking about him last night to my son. I didnt know if he was still with us.
Andy, at 22, his biggest joy is to push his phone in my face with dank memes and more,
and one led to another which had me ask him to bring up Leonard Nimoy,
Now, hes into Excision, and this was beyond torture, so I asked him if he new who Gomer Pyle was,
and he did from reruns, and had him pull up a video....
His response was priceless!
Ive had Joy since Andy Griffith, and you made us laugh last night. RIP.
Jim Nabors was much more than Gomer Pyle. He had a great singing voice. Remember seeing his albums at my fathers warehouse and thought it odd that Gomer sang.
Quoted from Jjsmooth:
If I knew how to attach vid, I would.
I'm sure someone here can.
Well if you really want to get attached to Vid I would start by buying him a drink. He seems to be a pretty good conversationalist and you never know where it might go.
I think I just derailed my own damn RIP thread
