Roy Linwood Clark (April 15, 1933 – November 15, 2018)


(Fox News) – Country star Roy Clark, the legendary singer and multi-
instrumentalist with an ear-to-ear smile who headlined the hit TV show
"Hee Haw" for nearly a quarter century, has died.

A rep for the singer told Fox News Clark died on Thursday at his Tulsa,
OK., home due to complications from pneumonia.

Clark was the "Hee Haw" host or co-host for its entire 24-year run, with
Buck Owens his best-known co-host. The country music and comedy
show’s last episode aired in 1993, though reruns continued for a few
years thereafter. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame
in 2009.
