 Fess Parker
Hey Gang,

Been busy as usual, so this post is late in coming, but along with Peter Graves and Robert Culp, I wanted to mention Fess Parker's passing. I was with the wife at the local Spud's, sitting at the bar having dinner when on the TV they announced Fess' death. At first, I didn't get that he had died, and when I realized what the TV was talking about I started to sing the Davy Crockett theme. Since Spud's is a restaurant mainly patronized by older folks, there was this collective gasp when they heard me sing and saw what was on TV. It was really sad and touching as we all just sort of had this collective moment of grief for Fess Parker...another part of our childhood (and probably a more significant part to the people older than me) was gone. Sorry to be a bummer, but it was really rather uplifting to know that almost everyone in the room had the same reaction and knew exactly who he was. Obviously, I only saw Davy Crockett in reruns as a kid, but it was always a big deal when the movies were on in my house...
