In 1973, All in the Family patriarch Archie Bunker met his match in George Jefferson, who was every bit his equal when it came to being bigoted, rude and utterly entertaining.

Sherman Hemsley's portrayal of George Jefferson garnered an Emmy nomination in 1984.

That was thanks to the deft comic touch of Broadway and TV veteran Sherman Hemsley, who died Tuesday at age 74 at his home in El Paso, his agent, Todd Frank, said the El Paso Sheriff's Department confirmed .

Born in 1938, the South Philadelphia native served in the Air Force and paid his way through drama school by working at the post office. He kept that day job even after moving to New York to pursue acting roles.

What iconic shows he was a part of. He was involved with many "firsts" in television. We will miss you Mr. Jefferson.

I remember watching The Jeffersons when I was a little boy - Now that I am much older, it is truly amazing what ground breaking television this and All In The Family truly were.
