Andy Griffith Dead at 86 Years Old

Andy Griffith
Douglas A. Sonders

Andy Griffith, who was probably best known for ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ and ‘Matlock’, has just passed away this morning at his home in Manteo, NC. One of the roles we’ll remember him most for was his apperance in Brad Paisley’s music video for ‘Waitin’ on a Woman.’

Griffith passed away Tuesday morning at his home in Dare County, North Carolina around 7 a.m. It had been reported earlier in the morning that an ambulance had been dispatched to his house, although it’s unclear why.

Griffith starred as small-town sheriff Andy Taylor on ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ from 1960-1968, a comedy that launched the career of Ron Howard, who played his son. Griffith then reprised the role in the series ‘Mayberry R.F.D.’ He also enjoyed a nine-year run as lawyer Ben Matlock on the series ‘Matlock,’ which graced the small screen from 1986-1995.
