LOS ANGELES — Frank Cady, a character actor best known as the owner of the general store on the situation comedy ‘‘Green Acres,’’ has died. He was 96.
Mr. Cady’s daughter Catherine Turk told the Los Angeles Times that her father died Friday at his home in Wilsonville, Ore. A cause of death was not released.
Mr. Cady played Sam Drucker, one of the less loony denizens of Hooterville in ‘‘Green Acres.’’ The show, about a Manhattan couple who leaves the big city to live in a rundown farm, ran from 1965 to 1971. Mr. Cady also played the same character in ‘‘Petticoat Junction’’ and ‘‘The Beverly Hillbillies.’’
He also had a recurring role as Doc Williams on ‘‘The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.’’
He and his wife, Shirley, moved to Oregon in the 1990s. She died in 2008.
