JIM NABORS has finally tied the knot!

The 82-year-old actor, best known for his role as Gomer Pyle in the 1960s sitcoms “The Andy Griffith Show” and “Gomer Pyle: USMC,” married his longtime companion, Stan Cadwallader, 64, in an intimate wedding ceremony at Seattle’s Fairmont hotel on Jan. 15.

“I’m truly blessed to find a person like Stan to spend the rest of my life with,” Nabors told The ENQUIRER in an exclusive interview.

 “After 38 years of being with him, I can now say I am a married man, and it feels great.”

Nabors and Stan have shared a home in Hawaii for the past 30 years and made the decision to wed after the state of Washington legalized same-sex marriage in December.

“It was a quickie wedding,” Nabors explained. “We said our vows, exchanged rings, then it was over and we flew out the next morning.”
