Gollllll..ly, Gomer Pyle. But, the talk of Mayberry today is that Jim Nabors has married his live-in male partner of 38 years in a Seattle ceremony back on Jan 15. Jim Nabors is now 82 and his life partner is Stan Cadwallader, 64. Jim Nabors has been quiet about his homosexuality all through his life, although there have been rumors before in some tabloids about the former star of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW and GOMER PYLE, U.S.M.C.
The Alabama born Gospel singer and comic actor had great success with his two careers that included an extensive catalog of record albums and a much beloved role as the dim-witted fellow from the gas station in Mayberry that joins the Marine Corps, much to the chagrin of his commanding office. The actor had previously been nominated for Golden Globe as well as Emmy Awards.
