Grew up watching that show ... sad to hear this am.

LOS ANGELES — Fess Parker, the tall, Texas-born actor who became a star of early television playing American frontier folk hero Davy Crockett and later portrayed Daniel Boone, died on Thursday at the age of 85.

Parker, whose role as Crockett made him a household name in the mid-1950s and inspired a generation of young American baby boomers to don his trademark coonskin cap, died of natural causes at his California home, a family spokeswoman said.
