Sylacauga native Jim Nabors, who famously portrayed Gomer Pyle on “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Gomer Pyle, USMC” in the 1960s, visited Pursell Farms in Fayetteville this week. Here, he is pictured with the Farms’ executive chef Andrea Griffith, whose name can be reduced to “Andy” Griffith. Pursell Farms marketing representative Tim Spanjer said they just couldn’t resist pairing the two in a photo for a fun “reunion.” Nabors, a longtime friend of the Pursell family, made the visit after performing his annual duties at the Indianapolis 500, where he has sung “Back Home Again In Indiana” during pre-race ceremonies 34 times since 1972. He returned to his home in Hawaii on Wednesday.
