This show came on in the late 80's i think before he passed away & it came on the CBS network. Della Reese played his wife on the show & Larenz Tate who played O-Dog in Menace II Society movie was his son. This show wasn't funny at all & it went off the air quick.

How old was he when he passed away? Was he born in St Louis in real life? I know he had money problems before he passed away & he had problems with the IRS. He was deep in debt. Remember how he used to throw his bills away on Sanford & Son? He probably did the same thing in real life too which got him in trouble.

John Elroy Sanford was born in St. Louis on December 9, 1922. So he had to be 69 when he passed away. He suffered from a massive hard-attack.

Redd Fox actually died in Della Reese's arms during a taping of one of the episodes. It was rehersal and from what I've read Della held him, screamed for help and begged Redd not to die.
