RIP Fess Parker.

Makes me feel old and vulnerable when I read of these oldies that I remember well, passing on.

Oh my gosh, that makes me sad....I'm too young to remember the Davy Crockett craze, but I certainly watched the Davy Crockett movies...He was in a lot of others, too.....

Rest in peace, Fess Parker.
