One Of My Childhood Heroes Passed Away Today
I was saddened to learn when I got home today that one of my favorite television heroes passes away today. Fess Parker, who plaed Davy Crockett in numerous Disney movies and Daniel Boone for the NBC series of the same name, passed away today at the age of 85.
You may also remember him as the dad in Old Yeller or the cult classic, Them! about rampaging ants, which I actually have on my DVR right now.
He brought me hours of entertainment and adventure and I'm thankful to him for it.
