LOS ANGELES (AP) - Frank Cady, a character actor best known as the general-store owner on the sitcom "Green Acres," has died. He was 96.

Cady's daughter Catherine Turk tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/Mm7Pt7 ) that her father died Friday at his home in Wilsonville, Ore. A cause of death wasn't released.

Cady played Sam Drucker, one of the less loony denizens of Hooterville in "Green Acres." The show, about a Manhattan couple who left the big city to live in a rundown farm, ran from 1965 to 1971. 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.
