Nabors, longtime partner wed in Seattle

By Associated Press


Hawaii News Now - KGMB and KHNL

The actor best known for playing the TV character Gomer Pyle in the 1960s has married his male partner of 38 years.

Hawaii News Now reports Jim Nabors and his partner, Stan Cadwallader, traveled from their Hono­lulu home to Seattle to be married Jan. 15.

Gay marriage became legal in Washington state last month.

Nabors is 82 years old; Cadwallader is in his late 60s. The couple met in 1975 when Cadwallader was a Hono­lulu firefighter.

Nabors says you’ve got to solidify something when you’ve been together as long as they have.
He says he’s been open about his homosexuality to co-workers and friends but never acknowledged it to the media before.
