The Jeffersons star Sherman Hemsley passes away

Looks like George Jefferson finally made it to that deluxe apartment in the sky. Sherman Hemsley, who was probably best known for his work on the iconic sherman_hemsley_dead1970’s sitcom The Jeffersons, passed away in his El Paso, TX home today at the age of 74, according to published reports.  Hemsley was personally selected by All In The Family creator Norman Lear to play George Jefferson beside Louise Jefferson (Isabel Sanford) as the newly arrived neighbors of Archie and Edith Bunker. Lear in time spun off the characters in 1975 and created The Jeffersons, about a successful African American family who lived in Manhattan. The show had a decade long run on television.

No word as of yet for funeral or memorial plans for Hemsley but as he just passed today we can be certain that information should released soon. Hemsley was an amazing actor and a wonderful person. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family and friends.
