RIP Ben Powers

Actor Ben Powers, best known for his role as Keith on 1970s TV sitcom Good Times, died on April 6 in New Bedford, Mass. An obituary did not reveal the cause of death. He was 64.

Powers was a standup comedian who made guest appearances on TV sitcoms Laverne & Shirley, Gimme a Break and The New Odd Couple, before landing his Good Times role.

Powers, who played a professional football player on Good Times, married Thelma Evans (Bern Nadette Stanis) in the 3rd season of the show.

Powers' character Keith had plans to move Thelma out of the Chicago housing projects. But on their way down the aisle Keith tripped over Thelma's brother, JJ Evans (Jimmie Walker), and broke his leg. Keith's career-ending injury put an end to Thelma's dreams of living a lavish lifestyle as a football star's wife. Broke and destitute, Keith moved in with the Evans family for the show's final 2 seasons. Good Times ran from 1974 to 1979.

Powers' TV wife wrote on Facebook, "My condolences goes out to the family of Ben Powers who past [sic] a few days ago. He was a great actor and great friend who is gone too soon. He will be missed by many. Until next lifetime my friend."

Powers's funeral is set for May 3 in Rhode Island.

I agree he was NO knight in shining, and I DO believe he sensed her vulnerability and used it to manipulate and use her. From what I've read he seemed like one of those dating site vultures.

    Mama Butter is REAL funny acting. She don't visit folks too much and not too many people will make it further than the back porch. She has already given me instructions: "My life insurance information is with all the important documents. Everything goes to you, because your brothers are men and they should be able to fend for themselves. *Funeral home who has taken care of all family members for 4 generations* will have my body. AND DON'T HAVE ANYONE SPEAKING OVER ME!!!! Only pastor does the eulogy and THAT IS IT! If you don't' follow my instructions, I'm going to tickle your feet in your sleep" :rofl: I love that lady.

    WHALE *pops lips&* he said that it originated back in slavery (didn't it all :lol: ) He said that slaves would hold up 1 or 2 fingers to signify that they are going to the outhouse and to let massa know how long they should be.

    He has identified with every religion in the book: witness, methodist, muslim, agnostic, etc. He taught youth bible study when I was coming along, and I would ask him some tough questions. He always gave me an answer with literature other than the bible to back it up. He's not a perfect man, but I really like his teachings.

    Mzwhang i think it varies depending on the ins. Also suicide as a result of depression is considered a mental illness or sumn. Youd hv to look up the specifics with your policy holder. Also depends on how soon afterwards. After x amount of years with the policy u can die by anything & they will pay out.

An old pastor (that them judas's ranned out the church :chase: <--- lak dat) was a GOODT TEACHING ONE! Did a whole "sermon" on when 9/11 happened and how "they entered from the "east" into/through the "NEW" city (New York). Then he even went as far as to lay the blueprint of the Tabernacle of Abraham over a map of the United States and the "entrance"/doors to the "temple" were the "entrance/doors" of the United States were landed on NYC. He even threw in the Statue of Liberty and it's inscription. And he even spoke of the statue Collasseous Rhodes (sp).

    Said all of that to say.......it was a good "sermon" and I like TEACHINGS like those. #carry on :tea: LOL

    i didn't memba all this but this is a summary of what happened in the final episode:

    J.J. creates and sells the character "Dyno-Woman" to a comic book publisher (modeled after Thelma). J.J. is getting his own "pad" too. Thelma announces she's pregnant, just in time too, for her husband Keith has learned he can play pro football again because his broken leg has completely mended. He'll also be signing with a major NFL team. Neighbor Wilona gets a new higher paying job that will allow her and daughter Penny to move from the projects. Michael,already in college,decides to move out and live on campus and continue his education. Thelma and Keith will be living in a great apartment in North Chicago but insist that Florida come live with them to help care for Thelma's baby. In great co-incidence,it turns out the building they're moving into is the exact same one Wilona and Penny will also live in! Florida & Wilona laugh and cheer at this wonderful news and end the series with a hug.

    hubby has co worker. Co worker alluded that we should do trade babysitting. :stop: Hubby like we good. Co worker asks can we watch his kids FOUR TO FIVE HOURS for his birthday. He was like I could pay you, exchange sitting. Hubby was like i will let you know. He asks AGAIN! Hubby was like we are busy on the weekend. Which we are. Hubby tells him we can do it maybe 1st of May for a couple of hours. He like I'll let you know.

    Am I unreasonable? Should you be choicy when getting free services. Is it unreasonable to ask someone to watch your child that long? Keep in mind I've meet him and his wife once.
