When word came of James Garner’s passing over the weekend, it was hard not to think of an old friend from Dayton.
He was a big fan of “The Rockford Files”. He was such a big fan that whenever he missed work due to illness, he’d watch reruns on cable or on VHS tapes. He recommended many others, myself included, to do same when any of us were sick.
I’ve long since lost touch with him. I think I can safely assume he has all the episodes of “Rockford” on DVD by now – and he spent part of Sunday watching a bunch of episodes.
Would that he did so in good health.
