It was sad to hear the popular actor Sherman Hemsley, a.k.a.”George Jefferson” died today. He was found dead in his El Paso home, at the age of 74, apparently from natural causes. Fans across the globe will remember the laughter and joy he brought to us all, as the wisecracking character in the hit sitcom, “The Jefferson’s”.
Anyone who originally watched the hit classic, “All in the Family“, knows this character was originated alongside “Archie Bunker”. The show became a successful spinoff for 11 seasons, back in the 70’s.
While Hemsley has left this earth, the beloved “George Jefferson” will keep his legacy alive forever. R.I.P. Mr. Jefferson…you are clearly “moving on up” to a deluxe apartment in the sky.
