An iconic actor from the 1960s and 1970s has just passed away. Ken Berry has taken his final breath at the age of 85.

Ken is best known for starring in “F Troop,” “Mama’s Family” and “Mayberry R.F.D." and other hit shows. Fans poured out touching tributes on social media when news broke that he had passed away.

"Berry appeared as widowed farmer Sam Jones on 'The Andy Griffith Show' and transitioned into the lead as the show spun off as 'Mayberry R.F.D.' He played Vinton Harper on the 'Carol Burnett Show' spinoff 'Mama’s Family' from 1983 to 1984, which starred Vicki Lawrence, Rue McClanahan and Betty White," reported Page Six.

Berry was born in Moline, Illinois and was a gifted singer and dancer. He also served in the United States Army with Sergeant Leonard Nimoy.

"Nimoy helped introduce him to studios after he left the Army, and soon Berry was under contract to Universal to appear in movie musicals. Berry worked in several musical revues, including with Abbot and Costello, and with Lucille Ball. Carol Burnett also worked with Berry, who later became a frequent guest on her show," reported Page Six.
