Fess Parker, 85, who launched a nationwide craze of coonskin caps and toy rifles in the mid-1950s with his TV portrayal of rugged frontiersman Davy Crockett, and later starred as Daniel Boone in another TV buckskin drama, died March 18 at his home near Santa Barbara, Calif., where he had been a successful winemaker and real estate developer. The cause of death was not reported.

I loved Fess Parker as a kid growing up. Then again, you might well have guessed that :)

I had the "coonskin" cap as a young'un myself. Damn, Sarge-we are losing them left and right.

RIP, Fess, you will be missed as well.
