Fess Parker (a/k/a Davy Crockett), RIP

March 21, 2010

I think it fitting to note the passing of Fess Parker, who played Davy Crockett for Disney, last Thursday. Although I was born well after Mr. Parker hung up his coonskin cap, I cannot count the number of times I watched him and the other brave men defend the Alamo to the last man. I also logged many a mile in my own coonskin cap, toting my cap-gun musket.

Here is Mr. Parker at his finest.
