There are reports that Andy Griffith died Tuesday morning in Dare County. According to WITN News, former UNC President Bill Friday, who is a close friend of the actor, confirmed the news. He was 86 years old.

Emergency medical crews were called to the home of actor, director and producer Andy Griffith, Tuesday morning, according to WITN. They say the call went out around 7:00 a.m.

The media outlet reports Griffith's home is located along Highway 64 in Roanoke Island.

Truly a sad day for classic TV fans. Most of the cast from the Andy Griffith Show has passed on. Most of those that remain are the child actors like Ron Howard. Although Gomer star Jim Nabors is still alive at age 82.

Just recently George Lindsey  who played Goober passed away.

Andy Griffith brought good wholesome family entertainment to television back in the 60's that to this day still shows in re-runs. The show forever marked a simpler time of innoccence in America we just don't see on television anymore. For millions of Americans the people of the make believe town of Mayberry were more relatable than any character from any modern day sitcom will ever be.
