all of us here in mayberrry knew and loved Ken Berry on T.V.
l loved Ken Berry as widowed farmer Sam Jones to me his most iconic role. He was kind, friendly. although I didn’t watch F Troop much through the ethosis of syndication like most of us was able to enjoy Mayberry r.f.d as well as other things. I think we should have a podcast and dedicate it to Mr. Berry. He will be greatly missed by everyone.
Yes, RIP, I enjoyed him in everything I saw. Great entertainer. Unlike you, I didn't care for the Sam Jones character or Mayberry RFD. He was just too serious.
Side note, I have an Uncle that served in the military with him. My Uncle said he was the funniest man, always up to something.
