Fess Parker was a wonderful role model for us baby boomers. My brother and I grew up playing Davy Crockett with the clothes, coonskin cap, lunch boxes, etc. Today's celebrities could learn a lot from the great old actors. They were ladies and gentlemen, honest, and true role models. God Bless Fess Parker, Long Live Davy, Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier.....

He was a great actor and good person. First Peter Graves and now Fess Parker. All of the good ones are passing on and we are stuck with idiots like the fool who posted on #3.

God bless Fess. He was a good actor, a good person and a real gentleman. He was also a very smart and savvy businessman, and used his acting money to buy real estate, he owns a good part of the Santa Barbara area! His shows always reflected morals and values that are sadly lacking in today's permissive society.
