Frank Cady Net Worth: Frank Randolph Cady (September 8, 1915 – June 8, 2012) was an American actor best known for his recurring and popular role as storekeeper Sam Drucker in three American television series during the 1960s – Petticoat Junction, Green Acres, and The Beverly Hillbillies – and his earlier role as “Doc Williams” on The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.
Cady was born in Susanville, California, the youngest of three children of Leon and Clara Cady. In high school he worked at a local newspaper, The Lassen County Advocate. Cady’s family later moved to Wilsonville, Oregon.
He studied journalism and drama at Stanford University, where he was involved with the campus humor magazine, the Stanford Chaparral. Following college graduation Cady served an apprenticeship at the Westminster Theater in London, England, appearing in four plays. In England he made an early television appearance on the BBC in late 1938.
He returned to Stanford in 1939 for graduate studies and a position as teaching assistant. While at Stanford, Cady met and later married his wife, Shirley Katherine Jones, in 1940. Born in Oakland, California, Shirley Cady, a Stanford University graduate, had several vocations – professional singer, teacher and legal secretary.
Dissatisfied with academia, Frank began a series of jobs two years later, as an announcer and news broadcaster at various California radio stations. His career was put on hold in 1943 when he joined the United States Army Air Corps, serving in England, France and Germany during World War II.
