He will never be forgotten.  RIP ShermanAlexander Hemsley.

Sherman Hemsley, who was part of a wave of African-American actors who made inroads on television in the 1970s, died Tuesday at his home in far East El Paso. He was 74.

Hemsley was best known for his exaggerated strut, wisecracks and boisterous attitude while playing the character George Jefferson on the popular sitcom “The Jeffersons” (1975-1985).
