For those of you saying, “Well golllleee, I didn’t know Jim Nabors was still around,” yeah, I know. But the 82-year-old Hawaii resident and his 60-something partner Stan Cadwallader flew to Seattle recently to tie the knot, now that such things are legal in Washington State.
Nabors says you’ve got to solidify something when you’ve been together as long as they have.
They couple met in 1975 when Cadwallader was a Honolulu firefighter.
Nabors says he’s been open about his homosexuality to co-workers and friends but never acknowledged it to the media before.
Maybe times have changed enough to do a new version of Gomer Pyle, USMC featuring a Marine who can be openly gay.
Best wishes to Nabors and Cadwallader.
