Actor Gary Coleman Dies

KSCB News - May 28, 2010 12:00 am

Gary Coleman, the child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes” whose later career was marred by medical and legal problems, has died after suffering an intercranial hemorrhage. He was 42.

Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank says

life support was terminated and Coleman died at 12:05 p.m. MDT.

Coleman, with his sparkling eyes and perfect comic timing,

became a star after “Diff’rent Strokes” debuted in 1978. He

played the younger brother in a pair of African-American siblings

adopted by a wealthy white man.

His popularity faded when the show ended after six seasons on

NBC and two on ABC.

He suffered continuing ill health from the kidney disease that

stunted his growth and had a host of legal problems in recent

years.
