I never met Don Knotts, but like most who saw him, he brought much enjoyment.

Some notes on Don Knotts (from the IMDB).

  1. Enlisted in the United States Army at age 19.
  2. Is a member of the fraternity Phi Sigma Kappa.
  3. Veteran of the Second World War who was awarded the World War II Victory Medal, Philippine Liberation Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal (with 4 bronze service stars), Army Good Conduct Medal, Marksman Badge (with Carbine Bar) and Honorable Service Lapel Pin.
  4. Attended and graduated from West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia, with a BA in Education graduated 1948.
  5. Took an early job plucking chickens for a market when he was told he didn’t have a future in acting.

I am glad that Don Knotts gave up plucking chickens, and didn’t listen to the naysayers. Not only did he have a future in acting, his acting left quite a shadow.

Thank You Don Knotts.Don Knotts (1924 - 2006
