    Don Knotts, who kept generations of TV audiences laughing as bumbling Deputy Barney Fife on "The Andy Griffith Show" and would-be swinger landlord Ralph Furley on "Three's Company," has died. He was 81.

    Knotts died Friday night of pulmonary and respiratory complications at the University of California, Los Angeles Medical Center, said Sherwin Bash, his friend and manager.

    He was a great comedian and actor. I loved a his movies. The Shakiest Gun in the West, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken, The Reluctant Astronaut...they don't make good family movies like that anymore.

    I heard that. It was very sad news. You get so used to some of these old legends being around FOREVER, that its quite a shock when they pass. But he leaves behind quite a legacy that hopefully people will still be enjoying decades down the road.
