  1. I always felt like he was like the guy next door and not someone you were watching on the television. He will be missed for sure.

  2. Jack Rabbit, I like how you usually try to give us a little something extra 🙂

  3. He’s a little ahead of my time but it sounds like he was a decent kind of guy.

  4. I think you’re right when you say he was likable but the truth is he wasn’t much of an actor. Every part he played he was basically playing himself. There was no difference between Maverick or Rockford whatsoever.

  5. Well Brian, if Garner couldn’t act, then I guess he was laughing all the way to the bank.

  6. I liked Garner a lot. He made a couple of good movies, “Murphy’s Romance” and “The Americanization of Emily,” and his cowboy/Texas Ranger portrayal in Larry McMurtry’s “Lonesome Dove” tv series was excellent. Plus, he managed to stay married to the same woman for 58 years. That might be a record for Hollywood matrimony.

  7. I also enjoyed Garner. He was a man’s man but could also be gentle and funny. He was one of a kind and will be missed.
