Andy Griffith Forever ingrained in America's collective TV memories as both folksy Sheriff Andy Taylor on "The Andy Griffith Show" and as the analytical lawyer on "Matlock," Griffith was also a Grammy-winning singer and a damn fine dramatic actor (see the 1957 film "A Face in the Crowd"). We all felt like we knew him. Griffith died July 3 from a heart attack. He was 86.
