Happy Birthday actor Jim Nabors
Born: James Thurston Nabors
June 12, 1930 in Sylacauga, Alabama, USA
Married to: Stan Cadwallader (15 January 2013 – present)
I think this story sums up my career the best. One time I was walking in an airport somewhere and I saw this woman with her young son. The son looked up at me and it was obvious that he recognized me. He thought for a second and he said ‘Mom, there goes an old Gomer!’
I never knifed anybody in the back. It was just not my nature at all and that is why I was so surprised that I made it in show business at all.
It’s pretty obvious that we had no rights as a couple, yet when you’ve been together 38 years, I think something’s got to happen there, you’ve got to solidify something. And, at my age, it’s probably the best thing to do. — JN, on his same-sex marriage to life partner Stan Cadwallader in 2013
