Jim Nabors has married his long-time companion in Seattle, after gay marriage was legalized by the state of Washington.
The 82-year-old actor, best known for his role as lovable Gomer Pyle in classic TV The Andy Griffith Show and Gomer Pyle: USMC, wed Stan Cadwallader in a private ceremony at the Fairmont Hotel on January 15.
“I’m truly blessed to find a person like Stan to spend the rest of my life with,” Nabors tells the National Enquirer in an exclusive interview.
“After 38 years of being with him, I can now say I am a married man, and it feels great.”
