May your soul rest in peace my comedy legend Sherman Hemsley.
He never married and had no children.
DeathHemsley died on July 24, 2012, at the age of 74 at his home in El Paso, Texas, apparently of natural causes.
“Growing up, all I wanted to do was live in a high rise building with a doorman,” D-Nice said. “RIP Sherman Hemsley. Thanks for the inspiration.”
After “The Jeffersons,” Sherman Hemsley remain in demand as an actor.
He started as Deacon Ernest Frye in the hit series “Amen” and had roles in TV shows like “Family Guy,” “The Hughleys,” “Family Matters,” “Martin,” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
“It was an Honor to know and work with you,” MC Hammer tweeted.” Thanks for all the laughs :)”
