Television icon Andy Griffith, best known as the sage town sheriff in the '60s sitcom The Andy Griffith Show and as a cantankerous defense attorney on 1980s-'90s drama Matlock, died today in Roanoke Island, N.C. He was 86 years old

Andy Griffith contributed to making our world a better place. I feel like I have lost a good friend. I am sure he is with God singing a joyful tune.

I remember seeing Andy Griffith for the first time at the show when I was about 11 years old in "No Time for Sergeants". As I remember Don Knotts also had a small part in it.

Another good old talent gone.....

Oh! So sad. I grew up watching the reruns. They don't have comedies like that today.

I will always have fond memories of Andy Griffin, his television family, and the various characters that he portrayed through his love for acting.

A sad day in Mayberry.

...and pretty much every other place in the world.

I've watched the movie countless times. It's a gut buster.

Rest in peace, Andy, and thanks for the memories.

His legacy also includes the impression he made on Ron Howard.

My wife, who almost never whistles, tells me she was whistling this a.m. and stopped to think what it was she was whistling. It was, of course, the theme to The Andy Griffith Show, A bit later she turned on the TV and heard he has died.

I had the chance to grow up in a Mayberry like town in East Texas, My grandfather was the county Sheriff back in the early 60's and it was so much like the Andy Griffith show in many ways, unfortunately no Barney or Goober but the layed back lifestyle was great. I was just telling my mother the other day how much I missed those days and how I luved to watch the Andy Griffith show as it reminded me of a simpler time and easier life....RIP Andy you will be missed.

Did you have an Otis?

I can't sing a lick, but I can whistle the theme song!

What a wonderful man! I great up in a town of 300 people, (And, my grandfather was the town barber in a slightly larger town nearby) so I could really relate to Mayberry - the good and bad aspects. Everyone took care of everyone; everyone was in everyone's business.

Perhaps whistling.

I grew up watching the Andy Griffith Show reruns, then Matlock as a young adult. He presented a gentle, kind, yet strong spirit in his acting.
