    Default RIP George Jefferson!!

    http://www.tmz.com/2012/07/24/sherma...he-jeffersons/

    Sherman Hemsley, the actor who made the character George Jefferson famous in "The Jeffersons," has died, El Paso cops tell TMZ.

    Hemsley died at his home in El Paso, Texas.

    Sources tell us ... it appears Hemsley died from natural causes.

    Hemsley, who was 74, became famous during his appearances on "All in the Family." The spin-off, "The Jeffersons" was a monster hit. He also starred in the TV show, "Amen." He was also a professional singer and even released the single in 1989, "Ain't that A Kick in the Head."

    When he and Archie Bunker would have words or a showdown, it was freakin' hilarious! No one gave any ground. I would guess they had some serious laughs on the set :-)

    RIP Mr. Hemsley.

    Don't worry he just moved up to a deluxe apartment in the sky! RIP
