Sad. So many child stars live a wretched adult life, always chasing the fame and popularity of their youth.

RIP Gary and my condolences to his family.

It's amazing he lived as long as he did with the health problems he had. He really should have died many years ago. I hope he found peace and love in his life before he passed.

Another irony is this quote:

Quote:
“I want to escape that legacy of Arnold Jackson,” he told The New York Times during his gubernatorial run. “I’m someone more. It would be nice if the world thought of me as something more.”
And yet the very article that this quote appears in is titled: `DIFF’RENT STROKES’ STAR GARY COLEMAN DIES

He couldn't even escape the legacy of Arnold Jackson in death.

It's sad but true.

Todd Bridges, who played Willis, actually wrote a book called "Killing Willis" where he talks about his transgressions and how much he struggled to create a public image outside of Willis Jackson.

Gary Coleman is from my home town, Zion, Illinois, it's about 50 miles north of Chicago and borders Wisconsin and Lake Michigan. His parents still live there.


Anyways, some crazy circumstances surrounding his death are starting to pop up about his ex-wife pulling the plug...
