Don Knotts, an American actor known best for playing the bumbling Deputy Barney Fife in the 1960s series The Andy Griffith Show, has died.This is his biography at IMDB.
Knotts was also widely recognized for his role in the 1970s sitcom Three's Company. He played Ralph Furley, a middle-aged landlord with a predilection for leisure suits and ascots who mistakenly thought of himself as a swinger.
Knotts, who lived in West Los Angeles, died Friday night of lung cancer at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, Calif., media reports said on Saturday, quoting his business manager and cable TV executives.
He was 81.
I knew Don Knotts more as Mr. Furley than as Barney Fife. Mr. Furley ranked way higher than Mr. Roper any day.
