Happy Belated Birthday

Born the first day of June 1926 was a man known as Andy Griffith. He was born in Mount Airy to Carl and Geneva Griffith. Griffiths father was a carpenter and at around the age of the 3 purchased a house for the family. During high school Andy often was activ performing and playing music. He was mentored by a priest at Grace Moravian Church who helped Andy nurture his skills til graduation in 1944. Perhaps it was the manner of his mentor that convinced Griffith to leave the persuit of being a Moravian preacher and pursue music.

Andy Griffith lived a good long life passing on July 3rd 2012 at the ripe age of 86. Andy was married a few different times during his life. Griffith also fathered two children Andy Griffith Jr. and Dixie Griffith. He had worked as an actor, television producer, writer and a singer. I for one have enjoyed his work, you can still catch reruns of the Andy Griffith show
