Wasn't his name Leroy in Fame?

That's so sad. Wow, he was SO young in Fame...I still have the episode of the Fame TV series where Doris dreams she's in the Wizard of Oz...I think Leroy was the Scarecrow in that. I must have watched that about 900 times when I was little.

Yahoo reports that he was HIV-positive and died of a stroke.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.
