Sherman Hemsley and Luis Avalos' deaths in Ghost Fever

Sherman Hemsley (1938 - 2012)

Film Deaths:Edit

  • Love at First Bite (1979) [Rev. Mike]: Possibly falls to his death after jumping out of a church, shocked that George Hamilton is a living corpse (not known if this was intended to be fatal but I'll list it in case) (Played for comic effect).
  • Ghost Fever (1987) [Buford Washington/Jethro]: Playing a dual role, "Buford" is killed in a car accident, along with Luis Avalos, when "Jethro" and Myron Healey blow out their tires after they say they're better off dead; they appear as ghosts afterwards. "Jethro" died of unspecified causes long before the story begins; he appears as a ghost throughout the entire film (played for comic effect).

TV DeathsEdit

  • Dinosaurs: Changing Nature (1994) [BP Richfield]: Providing the voice of a puppet dinosaur, he dies (off-screen), along with everybody else in the series, when the ice age begins and all the dinosaurs die. (Thanks to Kyle)
