His life and retirement on a macadamia plantation in Hawaii
What is Jim Nabors of “Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.” doing now? Where does he live?
—Betty Singer, Wonder Lake, Ill.
Nabors, 82, who was born in Sylacauga, Ala., lives in Hawaii, where he owned a macadamia plantation for many years. He has retired from show business but makes it a habit to perform “Back Home Again in Indiana” each year at the Indianapolis 500. Since 1987, he has only missed it twice—in 2007 and last May, when he had heart valve surgery. Nabors says he plans to return this year “and every year until I’m 100 years old.” In January he married his companion of 38 years, Stan Cadwallader, in a private ceremony in Seattle, Wash.
