‘Gomer Pyle, USMC’ star Jim Nabors marries male partner in Seattle
Seattle Times ^ | 1/30/13

Posted on 01/30/2013 2:47:59 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

“Gomer Pyle, USMC” star Jim Nabors married his longtime male partner at Seattle’s Fairmont Olympic Hotel earlier this month, according to Hawaii News Now.

Nabors, a Hawaii resident, had never publicly come out. But his relationship with Stan Cadwallader wasn’t a secret before they decided to take advantage of Washington’s new same-sex marriage law, he told the news station.

“I’m 82, and he’s in his 60s, and so we’ve been together for 38 years, and I’m not ashamed of people knowing, it’s just that it was such a personal thing, I didn’t tell anybody,” Nabors he told the station.

Cancel his appearance at the Indy 500 “Back Home Again in Indiana” might be misunderstood.

But if you were 82, would you maybe marry a woman in her 60’s who you’d been with for 38 years?

Nabors was outed 25 or more years ago, back in ancient days when I was still going to the race. I don't know that he ever publicly acknowledged that he was gay -- this story suggests not -- but it was universally known.

When the word came out, the Indy 500 feared a backlash from 400,000 drunken redneck racing fans and asked Nabors to step aside for the opening ceremonies. The reaction of 400,000 druken redneck racing fans, however, was to set up a chant of "we want Gomer." Vox populi, big time. Nabors was back the next year.

I have not been back to the race for more than 10 years, as kids and changing responsibilities mean I don't get to Indiana as much. I understand that Nabors was ailing this year and that they used a recording of him singing Back Home Again. He is an institution. He has, or had when he was younger, a wonderful singing voice, and he owns that song.

Sorry only in a perverse perverted world did a marriage take place. Why is it the majority of humans at any given point in time, never ever learn lessons of history?

When Rock Hudson was outed in the early 1970’s, Nabors was reputed to be his main squeeze.

Go back 38 years. If you were 44 would you start someone in their 20s? If you were in your 20s would you date someone in their 40s? Unusual but not unknown.

Hard to believe how far we’ve fallen

Yeah, when we found them it was not more that 24 hours before they were on their way to a medical discharge.

Now solders are expected to kiss and hug them.

I understand that they found how AIDS came to America. It was smuggled into our country from England in the rear end of a Hudson many years ago.

You’re welcome.

What was also amazing was that he did that in the context of filming the show. So he was being the silly Gomer Pyle and scuttled out there, and then INSTANTLY had to get his breathing together to put on a world-class performance. That was not easy, at all.

Don’t surrender the language to the culture destroyers.

It’s within FR acceptable limits to put “marry” in quotes.

For example.

Pervert in Seattle “marries” his dog.

I thought about that once (not very long), one of those gay guys must be a lesbian.

I lived in a small town in the mid-80’s where Nabors played the local county fair. Long before anyone was out of the closet, but immediately everyone realized he was gay.

He was with this boyfriend (supposedly has been for nearly 40 yrs.). Surprisingly for a small church-going community they all seemed okay with Nabors. But the boyfriend was most likely the least popular person to ever set foot in town. Flamingly gay, and beyond that thoroughly obnoxious.
