    Especially bittersweet here in Indiana, as he sang "Back home Again in Indiana" before nearly every Indianapolis 500 for the last four decades. He was much loved here, and his presence at the races were just another part of the rich traditions it holds.

    Jim Nabors, Gomer Pyle on ‘Andy Griffith Show,’ dies
    Audrey Mcavoy, Associated Press

    Honolulu – Jim Nabors, the shy Alabaman whose down-home comedy made him a TV star as Gomer Pyle and whose surprisingly operatic voice kept him a favorite in Las Vegas and other showplaces, died Thursday. He was 87.

    Nabors, who underwent a liver transplant in 1994 after contracting hepatitis B, died peacefully at his home in Hawaii after his health had declined for the past year, said his husband, Stan Cadwallader, who was by his side.

    “Everybody knows he was a wonderful man. And that’s all we can say about him. He’s going to be dearly missed,” Cadwallader said...

    The more recent races were not the same without him.

    RIP.

    I loved his portrayal of Gomer Pyle in the Andy Griffiths Show. There was something touchingly sweet about him and ‘Gomer’. Vale Jim.
