Goodbye, Dr. Lindsey

The sad news greeted most of us this morning; George Lindsey had passed away. Stories of his precarious health had made their way around the Shoals for the past year, but his passing was still unexpected to most of us.

His legacy will live on at his alma mater. The world has lost a true star...and a true gentleman.


Trivia: When Lindsey's character of Goober first appeared on The Andy Griffith Show, his last name wasn't Pyle, but Beasley.

  1. Thanks for this wonderful photograph in your tribute. I've seen many tributes to George, but not enough. Thanks for all you do for the Shoals.
