Notable in that I often brought him up when discussions of "what celebrity do you look like" came up.  Him or Fred Gwynn.

Anyway, another piece of my childhood gone.  RIP, Gomer.  Say "Hey" to Goober.

Kind of old news (The Bone has been playing it up for a while), but I thought he deserved a mention.  He always did a fine job.

Author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
