Fess Parker

Fess Parker died today; died at 85 and on his wife's 84th birthday.
Damn, we lost both Davey Crockett and Dan'l Boone in one fell swoop.
I grew up with Dan'l and Mingo, even wore a coonskin cap until the 3rd graders beat my ass and took it away.
For a minute anyway, until I went home and got my Pop's German Shepherd and took it back.
Fess, you're gonna be missed.

Yes, a real man....."

TV was a lot different in those days.. Good shows... I don't, one time, recall Fess Parker making a crude statement or baring his butt on the show..

It also says a lot that he left Hollywood and had a successful life and marriage outside of TV.
