As you may have heard by now, legendary actor James Garner passed away over the weekend.
I can’t tell you how sad this makes me.
I’ve always loved James Garner. Some of my best memories are of sitting with my dad watching Maverick repeats and The Rockford Files. We were both big fans. Then later, seeing him in Murphy’s Romance, show up in the Maverick remake as Mel Gibson’s father, & even in The Notebook. I don’t think there was ever a role he played that I didn’t enjoy.
And I got the feeling he was a really great guy, you know? Not just as the characters he played, but in real life, too.
I, for one, will miss knowing he’s out there in the world.
