Fess Parker died today at age 85. Fess played Davey Crockett in the 1950s which set off a mania for coonskin caps. He also played Daniel Boone on TV. He retired from acting and ran a successful winery in Santa Barbara. He was a very nice and approachable star. He will be missed by those who love Disney History.

This ruins the celebrity death trio.
Corey Haim, Peter Graves, Alex Chilton and now Fess.
Look out celebrities.
There are 2 more of you lined up to snuff it.

This is going to devastate Patty. She's a huge Fess fan.

Bummer. The older I get, the more I start to think Mortality just isn't kidding. :x

When I was a kid, Fess was the guest star one year at the Shrine Circus and I went to see him. Of course at that time I knew him from playing Daniel Boone.

Since he played both Daniel Boone and Davey Crockett and his costume was virtually identical for both characters I always got those two guys mixed up, and I thought for a long time that at least one of them was a fictional character.
