Fess Parker Passes Away at 85
A nation doffs its coonskin caps to Fess Parker, who starred on the TV series “Davy Crockett” and “Daniel Boone” in the 1950s and 1960s and who died today at his home in the Santa Ynez Valley, CA. He was 85.
Mr. Parker, a native Texas, left show business for a career in business and real estate in the 1970s. He opened mobile home parks and a luxury hotel in California and started Fess Parker Winery.
