R.I.P. Sherman Hemsley

Television icon Sherman Hemsley passed away at his El Paso, Texas, home, according to TMZ. He was 74. Hemsley is best known to his generations of fans as successful upper east side dry cleaners owner George Jefferson in The Jeffersons.

Hemsley won an Emmy in 1984 for his star-turning role as the abrasive-but-lovable patriarch of the Jeffersons. Hemsley was introduced to television audiences in the 1970s as Archie Bunker’s equally bigoted next door neighbor on All in the Family.

Hemsley went on star in his own sitcom with wife “Weezy” (Isabel Sanford) and son (Mike Evans). The popular series ran from 1975-1985.

Hemsley went on to star as the grumpy-but-lovable Deacon Ernest Frye in NBC’s Amen in 1986. After Amen was cancelled, Hemsley earned a modest living appearing at conventions, in commercials and small television roles, including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Helemsley, who never married, was reportedly an out and proud gay man. He had no children.

      Sherman was on some TV show a few years back..he hosted a Jeffersons reunion on the show. They followed him around as he gathered the things to make the dinner. It was nice.
      Only Jenny, (the 2nd) Lionel, Florence and Ralph the butler were still alive though.
      I may be wrong, but I think maybe Mr. Bently was too?
      Anyway, it was really nice. Some of the cast of Amen attended also.

      Did y’all know that the character who played Willona from the TV show good-times sings the closing song on the Jeffersons. The Character who plays Lionel on the Jeffersons (Mike Evans) wrote Good-times. The show was based on his life (don’t quote me on that part)

      George Jefferson lived next door to Archie Bunker
      Florida Evans was Maud house keeper

      Shows like Happy days spun off Joannie loves Chachi dont count.

      On another note Whats happening was based on the movie cooley High

      A black woman’s intuition is something else! RIP Sherman. His orientation was delved into just to bring up the matter that he has never been married or no children once affairs of his estate arises. He was out and proud, just not flamboyant about it. Just so you all know the daddy from fresh prince is too. Only letting you know because it’s kinda sad to find out upon someone’s passing and it looks slanderous. Not that it matters, just some FYI.
