Gary Burghoff Remembers Harry Morgan


Ken Levine has posted a short statement from Gary Burghoff in which he remembers the late Harry Morgan. Here’s a brief excerpt:

You had to know Harry to appreciate his abundant humor, warmth, kindness, modesty and his special kind of quiet strength. There was not an insecure bone in him. He was a “straight shooter” but also non-judgmental, understanding and tolerant.

Read the entire statement at Ken’s blog. Mike Farrell released a statement to the press yesterday and comments from Jamie Farr were included in an NPR story published on Wednesday.
