Taken from the Wik...

Michael Jonas Evans (November 3, 1949 – December 14, 2006) (usually credited as Mike Evans), was an American actor and co-creator of the show Good Times with Eric Monte (Ralph Carter's character Michael Evans was named after him).

Evans was born in Salisbury, North Carolina. His father, Theodore Evans Sr., was a dentist, and his mother, Annie Sue Evans, taught school. His family later moved to Los Angeles, where he graduated from Los Angeles High School. He later studied acting at Los Angeles City College.

Evans is most famous for playing Lionel Jefferson on the first three seasons on a recurring basis on All in the Family and for all but three of the seasons of The Jeffersons as a principal member of the cast. He left because of his role in the production of Good Times, but returned after that show was cancelled in 1979.

His last TV role was in 2000, on an episode of Walker, Texas Ranger. He also was a real estate investor and owned properties in California's Inland Empire.

Evans died of throat cancer at his mother's home in Twentynine Palms, California. The announcement of his death was not released until a week later.
