Gary Coleman Dies at 42
Diff’rent Strokes star Gary Coleman passed away Friday after being hospitalized for a fall near his home in Utah Wednesday. It seems when the actor fell, he hit his head and suffered an intercranial hemmorage. He was just 42.
Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank says that life support was terminated and that Coleman died at around 12:05 am.
Gary rose to fame in the 1980’s when he played the role of Arnold on the popular sitcom Diff’rent Strokes alongside Todd Bridges and Dana Plato. His signature line (“What you talkin’ ’bout Willis”) and his adorable face made him an icon, however his bright start was overshadowed by legal issues, disputes and health problems.
Gary Coleman leaves behind his wife, Shannon Price, along with many family members, friends, fans and his legacy. He will be missed.
