(Reuters) - Actor Andy Griffith, whose portrayal of a small-town sheriff made "The Andy Griffith Show" one of American television's most enduring shows, has died at his North Carolina home at age 86, the Dare County Sheriff said on Tuesday.

"At approximately 7:00 AM, July 3, 2012, Andy Griffith passed away at his home on Roanoke Island, Dare County, North Carolina. The family will release further information shortly," Sheriff J.D. "Dough" Doughtie said in a written statement.

Very sad news. I grew up watching the show and enjoyed watching my sons laugh at the old time humor. A lot can be learned from Andy. :(

I sort've grew up on this show too (I'm in my 20s). My parents definitely grew with this show. He will be missed. :(
