Subject: I remember seeing an "Andy Griffith Show" documentary, a crew member told of visiting McNear at the Actors Home in the end. He said McNear sat talking, with cigarettes burned to his fingers without notice. Sad.

McNear was only in his 50s, when he suffered stroke in AGS 3rd season, but later continued in seated scenes.
