Oh! I'm so sad. I just loved Fess Parker. I had such a crush on him as Davy Crockett when I was a kid. He died recently of natural causes. He was 85.
In 2004, I got to visit his winery and eat in his restaurant. I even got to meet him and shake his hand! This was such a thrill for me. I'm so glad I had this opportunity. His place is beautiful, and is located in Los Olivos, CA.
