‘Sanford and Son’ star Raymond Allen has passed away at the age of 91.

As The New York Post reports:

Raymond Allen, an actor who had memorable recurring roles on classic ’70s sitcoms “Sanford and Son” and “Good Times,” died yesterday of a non-COVID respiratory illness at a long-term care facility in California. He was 91.

Allen’s death was announced by his daughter, Ta Ronce Allen, on a Facebook post yesterday.

The actor was best known for his “Sanford and Son” character of Uncle Woodrow “Woody” Anderson, brother-in-law of Redd Foxx’s Fred Sanford and long-suffering husband of LaWanda Page’s Aunt Esther. On another Norman Lear-created series, “Good Times,” Allen played Ned the Wino, a neighborhood street character and friend of the series’ central Evans family. Both Woody and Ned showcased Allen’s comic depiction of cheerful intoxication.

Born in Kansas City, Missouri, the youngest of 12 children, Allen also appeared in ’70s series “What’s Happening!!,” “Starsky and Hutch,” “The Love Boat” and “The Jeffersons.” He largely withdrew from acting following his string of ’70s roles.

Allen is survived by two daughters.

The Covid hoax is a live drill per Mike Pampeo only. It’s to close down the boarders to lock up the pedophile rings. Plus part of the USA BANKRUPTCIES. This was a plandemic

Ray was a very funny guy and made people of all colors laugh. We have lost that part of our society. Ray was in that category, he was extremely funny, and made facial gestures that were very comical in the context. Nobody can laugh anymore at anything. Entertainment has become GARBAGE.
