R.I.P. Fess Parker

18 Mar

Best known for his portrayals of Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, veteran actor Fess Parker has died.  He was 85.

Since leaving his Hollywood days behind, Parker had been living in California with his wife, where he ventured into an entirely new career.  He bought a vineyard and was quite successful in his new venture in the winery business.

Sadly, Parker, who had been married to his wife Marcella for 50 years, died on her 84th birthday. 

Parker’s memory will live on and so will the song that defined such a huge part of his life.  “Davy, Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier.”
