Farewell - Davy Crockett aka Fess Parker Passes at age 85 Fess Parker, a baby-boomer idol in the 1950s who launched a craze for coonskin caps as television's Davy Crockett, died Thursday of natural causes. He was 85. Family spokeswoman Sao Anash said Parker, who was also TV's Daniel Boone and later a major California winemaker and developer, died at his Santa Ynez Valley home. His death came on the 84th birthday of his wife of 50 years, Marcella. "She's a wreck," Anash said, adding Parker was coherent and speaking with family just minutes before his death.

He was a doll and a very positive influence! Especially in view of what television has become today, we all are VERY FORTUNATE to have enjoyed Fess Parker as Davy Crockett! God bless him. He and his family are in our family's prayers.

According to the IMDB movie board, he was 6'7 - Now that's a tall actor. He was a gentleman and a fine actor.
