this surprised me that the actor Sherman Hemsley (The Jeffersons and that 80's show where he was Deacon Frye) never married and never had any kids and always shied away from the public limelight and was a recluse. I am surprised because I always saw him to be the opposite and we are always talking of never marrieds/childless folks on this board

Word on the grapevine is that Hemsley was gay and had a LTR with a man. Don't exactly think that qualifies as unmarried.

I never heard that until now so I read the Wikipedia. Although it doesn't say it outright, you kinda have a feeling...

On August 28, 2012, an El Paso, Texas news anchor interviewed the sole beneficiary of Hemsley's will, Flora Enchinton, who said Hemsley's body is frozen in the San Jose Funeral Home in El Paso, Texas, waiting for the court to approve his burial.[14] Enchinton says she had been friends with Hemsley and had even been his manager for more than two decades. During this time she lived with Hemsley and Hemsley's friend Kenny Johnston. Enchinton tells AP Hemsley never mentioned any relatives. "Some people come out of the woodwork – they think Sherman, they think money," Enchinton tells AP. "But the fact is that I did not know Sherman when he was in the limelight. I met them when they [Hemsley and Johnston] came running from Los Angeles with not one penny, when there was nothing but struggle

I don't care that he was gay, all I care is that he did this.
