Andy Griffith
 only passed away a few hours ago -- but TMZ has learned, the Hollywood icon has already been buried.

A rep for Twiford Funeral Homes in Manteo, North Carolina tells us, Andy was buried at 11:30 AM on his family farm on Roanoke Island. We're told Andy had previously requested to be buried immediately after his death ... so that's why it all happened so fast.

We made calls to find out if Andy was embalmed. No one was talking, but we're told it's legal in North Carolina to bury people without embalming them.

We're told Andy's burial followed a small, private service with close friends and family in attendance.

Andy was 86.

Not really so odd....my mother wasn't embalmed and we buried her within a day of her passing. It was her Wish not to have a showing. She didn't like the idea of her family and friends seeing her like that for the last time. She wanted any memories of her to be her smiling and happy! Embalming just freaked her out for some reason. LOL. We honored her wishes and had a closed casket memorial service.

I'd rather have it that way, be buried quick so my loved ones can grieve and move on vs the waiting game to buried prolonging the grieving process.
