I liked him almost as much as Gomer. One of my favorite episodes is actually one from the color years where he grows a beard and is treated as if he's now a deep thinker/philosopher.

I also like the episodes with Goober and his girlfriend, Flora.

There's only around 4 TAGS cast members left now. RIP. sad.png

ETA: He was actually 83. It was originally listed as him being 76.

I found this on imayberry.com and loved it:

Statement by Andy Griffith About George Lindsey

“George Lindsey was my friend. I had great respect for his talent and his human spirit. In recent years, we spoke often by telephone. Our last conversation was a few days ago. We would talk about our health, how much we missed our friends who passed before us and usually about something funny.

“I am happy to say that as we found ourselves in our eighties, we were not afraid to say, ‘I love you.’ That was the last thing George and I had to say to each other. ‘I love you.’

“George often told me his fondest memories of his life in show business were the years he spent working on ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ and ‘Mayberry R.F.D.’ They were for me, too.”
