According to his longtime love and husband, Stan Cadwallader, the comedian died peacefully at his home in Hawaii. Apparently, Nabors’ health had been in decline for the last year. In case you forgot, the TV legend received a liver transplant in 1994 after contracting hepatitis B.

On Jim’s tragic passing, Cadwallader shared with the Associated Press:

“Everybody knows he was a wonderful man. And that’s all we can say about him. He’s going to be dearly missed.”

How heartbreaking. In addition to his successful film and TV career, Jim was known for having a lovely baritone voice, which he used to record 28 albums. Few people may realize this, but Nabors had FIVE gold records and one platinum record.

The Alabama native also lent his voice to the Indianapolis 500, thus, his rendition of Back Home Again in Indiana has been a staple of the annual race since the ’70s. Unsurprisingly, in 1991, Nabors received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

As always, our thoughts are with Jim’s loved ones and fans during this sad time. R.I.P.
