Roy Clark

1933–2018

Closer Weekly - - In Memoriam -

With his pickin’-and-a-grin­nin’ per­sona as a co-host of the long-run­ning syn­di­cated skit-com Hee Haw, he could’ve eas­ily been dis­missed as just an­other corn­pone co­me­dian. But Roy was a daz­zlingly skilled artist. “He was a phe­nom­e­nal mu­si­cian who deftly played ev­ery in­stru­ment,” Hee Haw co-star Linda Thomp­son tells Closer. “He also had a rau­cous and won­der­ful sense of hu­mor. Roy, and his ex­tra­or­di­nary tal­ent and warm heart, will be greatly missed.”
