I was a huge Gary Coleman fan. He was fun and had parts in other TV shows as well. He was in Good Times and Buck Rodgers in the 25th Century. In later years he was down on his luck and did some appearances on TV. He even appeared on the Simpsons twice, Married with Children and the last episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
He was always making fun of himself. There was a comedy bit with the Gary Coleman grill. He was also in the Surreal life and ran for Governor. He was more qualified than Ariana Huffington.
In later years his life was filled with trouble. It was a sad end for a man who brought joy and happiness to millions. He was everyone's little brother.
