‘SANFORD AND SON’ STAR DIES AT 80



It’s the last ‘goodbye’ for Nathaniel Taylor who played Rollo Lawson on ‘Sanford and Son’ as he dies at 80! He died on February 27th at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after suffering a heart attack.

He was a popular face in the 1970s sitcom which was equally popular for family viewing.

He appeared in 32 episodes from 1972 through 1977. Taylor’s character, Rollo Lawson, was Lamont Sanford’s best friend and often a target of Fred Sanford’s ire, who believed Rollo was a criminal since he had spent time in jail. Taylor went on to have a role as part of the main cast in season one of the short-lived “Sanford and Son” spinoff  “Sanford,” which aired from March 1980 to June 1981.

He was also famous for other roles in the world of show biz.

He is survived by his wife, Loretta; daughters Laronda, Natalie, Donna and Cheryl; sons Nate Jr., Kaedi and Jamaal; six grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; one brother, Eugene; and two sisters, Mary and Betty.
