Ned Wertimer, pictured above with "Jeffersons" co-stars Marla Gibbs and Sherman Hemsley, passed away on Jan. 2, his manager tells the AP. The 89-year-old actor had been in a Los Angeles-area nursing home following a fall at his Burbank home last November.
Wertimer was a native of Buffalo, N.Y. and flew planes for the Navy in World War II before turning to acting. His other credits include "I Dream of Jeannie," "Mary Tyler Moore" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End."
He is survived by wife Skyne Uku, an Africana Studies professor at Cal State-Long Beach who married Wertimer in 1978.
