RIP, Jerry.

I have to admit, I wouldn't have known who this gentleman was if I didn't read your link.

Ah man...sad.
I admit I was not TOO familiar with him other than his time on the Muppet Show and a guest animated stint on  Scooby Doo.
He led the scooby gang to his whereabouts by way of singing a country song or something.

He died of emphysema.  I guess the "Smokey" finally got to him.
 
RIP, Jerry.

Wow, we lost a great one here. Jerry Reed was one of my favourite country singers of all time.

I still love the grin he gave when he portrayed The Snowman in Smokey and The Bandit, especially when the Snowman drove his rig over the bikers bikes.

I heard it said once that his role in that movie pretty much defined who he was, and that character was a pretty good ole boy.

R.I.P. Jerry, we loved you

If Burt Reynolds suddenly died, they could race across heaven to smuggle in Coors beer.

I could not begin to guess how many times I watched Bandit.

My favorite quote was from Gleason.

I remember him from "Smokey and the Bandit," but I mostly remember him as the meanie in "Gator."  I liked the movie a lot, but then, I was pretty young.  I don't know how it would hold up these days.

RIP, Jerry.

This should've been in the Best Songs I've Ever Heard thread, because that's what it is.
 
One of my all time favorites
 
 
RIP Jerry Reed.

That's a shame; I will always remember him for that affable smile of his.
