Gary Coleman

Gary Coleman passed away after a long illness at the end of May. Do you remember when he visited the Reedsburg area? The October 14, 1982 Reedsburg Times Press headline was “TV Star Visits Area”: “NBC television star Gary Coleman, who stars in “Different Strokes” was in the area this past weekend. Gary and his father, Willy are neighbors in Zion, IL to Roger and Joyce Spencer and their son Jason, who also have a home on Lake Redstone. The Coleman’s came up to Lake Redstone this weekend to visit their neighbors. On Saturday they visited the Wounded Knee tavern in Lime Ridge, where Gary was photographed playing a video game.”
