    Unfortunately we have sad news to report about an old school TV actor. Nathaniel Taylor, known to millions around the world as “Rollo” from the classic comedy series “Sanford and Son,” has passed away. He was 80.

    Taylor leaves behind his wife Loretta as well as 4 daughters, two sons and numerous grandkids and great grandkids. Services are yet to be announced

    Here’s a brief bio of Taylor vis Wilipedia:

    Nathaniel Taylor (born March 31, 1938) is an American television actor, best known for his recurring role as Rollo Lawson in the 1970s sitcom “Sanford and Son,” a role he later reprised on its short-lived 1980-1981 spin-off “Sanford.”

    He later played the first version of Jim-Jam with Redd Foxx on the 1986 series “The Redd Foxx Show.” Later, he played Rerun’s (Fred Berry) brother-in-law Ike in the sitcom “What’s Happening!!.”

    Taylor also was featured in “Trouble Man” starring Robert Hooks as one of Mr. Big’s henchmen.

    Sanford & Son was one of my favorites, maybe just because my dad forced me to watch it.
