Most of us remember Alex Karras from the 80's hit sitcom Webster. He played the step-father to little Webster. Others will remember Alex as a great NFL player with the Detroit Lions (1958 to 1970) or as Mongo on the hit movie Blazing Saddles (Remember the scene where he punches a horse in the face?) Well, he passed away from kidney failure. Apparently, he had been in poor health for the past few years!
