Sheriff of Mayberry Passes On

By alwaysakid

Andy Griffith, long known as the sheriff of Mayberry, died July 3, 2012. He was born in 1926, and will continue to live on in forever in the perpetual rebroadcasts of the Andy Griffith Show.
We've had Motortopia's announcement of Carroll Shelby's death on the website's main page for two months, so perhaps it's time to announce someone else's passing. Shelby did leave a far greater mark on the automotive world, but Griffith drove a lot of Fords, too.
So here's to another great loss. May Andy Griffith enjoy his new citizenship in heaven, and may all Motortopia members mourn his loss here on Earth. Because, "a man's got to do, what a man's got to do," as Barney Fife always said.
