Goodbye, Mike...

Mike Evans, who played Lionel Jefferson on All in the Family and its spinoff, The Jeffersons, has moved on up to the deluxe apartment in the sky...succumbing to throat cancer at the age of 57.

Evans also co-created and co-wrote Good Times (1974-1979), the first television series with an all-black cast that catapulted Jimmie Walker and his signature exclamation "Di-No-Mite!" to fame.

It is always a sad day when we lose a Mike.
