Man, it seems I have been writing a lot of R.I.P. blogs lately. On Friday May 28, 2010 child actor Gary Coleman passed away at the age of 42. Coleman played the smart alec Arnold Jackson on the hit sitcom "Different Strokes" in the late 70's and 80's. However after the show ended he found himself in financial hardship and sued his own parents for mis-handling his money. Gary was a broken man and was broke working as a security guard. Coleman lived a hard life and he went through a lot but at one time he was that kid everyone loved to see on prime time. If you are too young and never had a chance to see a great child actor at work please take a few moments and do so by clicking on the video below. THANKS FOR THE LAUGHS G.C. R.I.P.
