George Lindsey (December 17, 1928 May 6, 2012)
I grew up watching Andy Griffith show and Hee Haw. He also done many notable things I never knew about including serving in the Air Force and teaching high school.

quote:
Lindsey raised over US$1,000,000 for Alabama Special Olympics through 17 years of the George Lindsey Celebrity Weekend and Golf Tournament in Montgomery, Alabama and another $50,000 for the Alabama Association of Retarded Citizens. and participated as Head Coach-Winter Games in the Minneapolis, Minnesota Special Olympics National Competition.

From Wikipedia

I am sure he will be missed by many.


"No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well...maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten."
Hunter S. Thompson

Re: John A Davison, former member.
I somehow missed this when it was first posted.

However you felt about Salty in life (Salty was one of his on-line nicknames, and that's the name that has stuck with me), I'm sure we all appreciated his wit and indomitable spirit. He participated here for quite a while and contributed a great deal to the debate.

He's gone now, but if you read the obituary he left this life with grace while, evidently, still being true to himself. Those of us who are able should post whatever heartfelt appreciations we can muster to the condolences section at the end of the obituary:

Obituary: John A. Davison

--Percy

Edited by Percy, : Correct spelling in subtitle.

I was a fan of their pre 1975 stuff, never went in for disco. Nevertheless all three of the Gibbs, of the Bee Gees died too young.

There is no better love between 2 people than mutual respect for each other WT Young, 2002

Who gave anyone the authority to call me an authority on anything. WT Young, 1969

Since Evolution is only ~90% correct it should be thrown out and replaced by Creation which has even a lower % of correctness. W T Young, 2008

By the third I think he was thinking of younger brother Andy.

But you are correct he was not a Bee Gee.
