    A class act. His Wikipedia page is worth a read.

    Being a Hoosier by birth, it always brought a tear to my eye when Jim sang that song before every Indy 500. Go in peace, Jim. You’re one of the good ones!

    Excellent singer and actor. Did he die from bad meat in the can? (AIDS reference)

    He went straight at the end. Probably not…

    I remember an episode of Gomer Pyle, perhaps the first time when I saw him sing…He was late for a show to perform, and all I remember was his goofy, southern twang…and then he sang…jeez, I almost fell off my chair, remarkable seein I was a 10 year old kid…RIP, Jim, ya done good…

    That’s too bad. I love watching shows like Gomer Pyle with my little brother
    and kid nieces and nephews.

    He WAS a class act. That is was gay is not a biggie with the man, he didn’t put it in your face .. he kept his personal life pretty much in house. He was wholesome entertainment … Unlike the current swath of knob gobblers, Kevin Spacy for example. RIP Jimbo.
