John Andrew Franklin Jr Family Matters – Barry Jenner, most popular for his work of Lt. Murtaugh on Family Matters and Admiral Ross on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine passed on Tuesday at 75 years old.
Before his TV step forward during the 1990s, Jenner had a few guest roles. It began with Barnaby Jones in 1979. All through the 1980s, Jenner showed up on shows like Knot’s Landing, Dallas, St. Elsewhere, and Remington Steele.
Jenner sprung up in the initial four periods of Family Matters as Lt. Lieu Murtaugh, the intolerable superior of Carl Winslow. On Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Jenner joined the cast during the show’s 6th season as Admiral William Ross and showed up in twelve scenes.
Jaleel White, most popular to fans as Steve Urkel, united in scenes with Jenner and tweeted his sympathies. Besides acting, Jenner filled in as a save official for a long time with the Los Angeles Police Reserve Foundation.
The on-screen character died from a fight with leukemia. The actor is survived by his wife, actress Suzanne Hunt, and two stepsons.
Family Matters was a side project from the ABC sitcom Perfect Strangers.
In the 1987-88 periods of Perfect Strangers, the fundamental characters found a new line of work working at a paper where Jo Marie Payton played Harriette Winslow, the lift administrator.
That equivalent season, Hariette’s better half, Carl (played by Reginald VelJohnson) showed up.
The couple showed up irregularly throughout the following season and a half. In 1989, Harriette and Carl were given their own sitcom, Family Matters, which featured them and their three youngsters, Eddie, Laura, and Judy, just as Carl’s mom, Estelle, and Hariette’s more youthful sister, Rachel (and her child, Richie).
In an early scene, we meet the geeky nearby neighbor, Steve Urkel, played by Jaleel White, and soon, the over-the-top comedic executions of White as Urkel would turn into the spotlight of the show.
From multiple points of view, it was like how Fonzie assumed control over the spotlight of Happy Days. But on this occasion, there was no Ron Howard to keep Urkel from taking over.
Also, exactly how the character of Richie Cunningham’s older sibling Chuck was worked out of Happy Days when Fonzie made him pointless (as Fonzie would be the place Richie would go for counsel). Thus, did a portion of the characters on Family Matters become unnecessary.
One of these characters was Jaimee Foxworth’s Judy Winslow, the youngest offspring of Carl and Harriette.
