According to a press release issued by the Marshall Donnelly Combs Funeral Home in Nashville Lindsey died earlier this morning after a recent bout with an unnamed illness. The funeral home also says that funeral arrangements are still being made.

Lindsay played perhaps my favorite character on The Andy Griffith Show and I always remember how I'd always end up laughing at his jokes whenever the beanie wearing Goober appeared on the show. The one joke that sticks out in my mind that I know that he performed was:

"A football coach, holding a football, asks his quarterback, `Son, can you pass this?' The player says, `Coach, I don't even think I can swallow it.'"

RIP George Lindsey you will live on as Goober in reruns for many years bringing a smile to the face of everyone who watched his impressive work.
