Fess Parker as Davy Crockett

He was more than a bit of an American Icon, who started a whole wave of coonskin caps and buckskin outfits with his mid-50’s TV portrayal of Davy Crockett, and later, Daniel Boone.

Parker’s been living in Santa Barbara where he was apparently a decent winemaker and real-estate developer.

No cause of death was reported.

Fess Parker was 85.

Addendum; (Davidl)

Certainly an icon, but not just an American icon.  I had the experience of a co-working singing the Ballad of Davy Crockett in Macedonian.
