Gary Coleman Passes Away

Sad news for the afternoon. Actor from the 70s sitcom, "Diff'rent Strokes" Gary Coleman passed away at the age of 42 this afternoon of a brain hemorrhage. Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank said that Gary died at 12:05 p.m. MDT. Gary suffered the brain hemorrhage Wednesday at his Santaquin home, 55 miles away from Salt Lake City.

A statement from his family said he was conscious until midday Thursday, when his condition worsened and he slipped into a coma. Coleman was then placed on life support, and passed away this afternoon.

Even if you didn't watch the show (or the reruns for my generation LOL), you definitely knew Gary by his famous line "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?!" LOL I also remember him being in The Parkers, and Nikki made a show for him or something called "Gary & Company" and they had a theme song for it. I used to sing it all the time LOL Here's the episode below. I loved this one! Part two starts the song if u dont wanna watch the whole thing. After the jump!

Awww...swear the last two years have been terrible for celebrities. We've lost several, and it's sad to read about, especially when you watch them and read up on them. RIP Gary. You will be missed. Keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
