BernNadette Stanis pens a heartfelt message as she paid tribute to her 'Good Times' costar, Raymond Allen days after his death at 91-years-old.


On August 10, 2020, actor Raymond Allen died at 91-years-old. According to NBC News, he had been battling respiratory issues before he passed on.

His daughter, Ta Ronce Allen confirmed the news in an emotional post on Facebook. She wrote, "Dad received his wing two hours ago. His warmth, kind heart, and cleaver sayings will be missed."


While confirming the passing of her father, Ta Ronce revealed Allen was the last of his twelve siblings, who had been alive. She added, "his laughter will ring in heaven."

The actor made audiences laugh for decades starring in sitcoms such as "Sanford and Son," "Good Times," and "The Jeffersons."


Only days after his death, BernNadette Stanis, who starred with Allen on "Good Times," shared a heartfelt tribute to him. She wrote:

"I enjoyed working with you. You were such a good actor, I remember you didn't drink alcohol but you played a very good Wino."


Fans responded to the post and reminisced about some of their favorite shows that Allen appeared in. One fan commented:

"REST IN LOVE Mr. Allen. Sorry for your loss Bernadette. God bless. Wow, a piece of my childhood gone but never forgotten."


Allen starred as "Ned the Wino" on "Good Times." He played the neighboured drunk and friend to the main characters, the Evans family.

Mike Epps also paid tribute to Allen. He reflected on his character on "Sanford and Son." Epps said Allen was one of the great understated characters that had appeared on the show in the 1970s. The comedian thanked Allen for paving the way for him.
