Gary Coleman has died at the age of 42. Coleman's death comes as a tragic end to a tragic life.
Coleman is best known for his role as the lovable Arnold in the 1970s-80s television show Diff'rent Strokes. He made the show a huge hit.
Coleman starred in other television shows and in movies while on Diff'rent Strokes, but he could not sustain that success. After the show ended, his career effectively ended as well. Unfortunately, Coleman's parents stole most of the millions of dollars he earned as a child star, which left him broke during much of his adult life.
Coleman had several problems with criminality, and his life seems to have imploded. Nonetheless, millions of people will remember him for the laughter he brought into our homes. RIP.
