Sherman Hemsley, Herbert Himmel

While all of the tributes to late actor Sherman Hemsley will reference his famous character of George Jefferson, those of us summer camp pop culture lovers will remember Hemsley for his role in the 1990 TV movie Camp Cucamonga, where he plays the handyman Herbert Himmel who is mistaken for the state inspector when he shows up to the camp from a wedding wearing a suit. The movie  also stars Jennifer Aniston and many of the teen stars from early ’90s television.
