Ernest Borgnine, R. I. P.

Ernest Borgnine, Oscar winner, has died at 95 - Ernest Borgnine, who created an array of memorable characters over the years and won the best actor Oscar for his role in 1955's "Marty," has died. Borgnine was 95.

His longtime spokesman, Harry Flynn, said that Borgnine died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with his family by his side.

As the cruel, vicious Sgt. Fatso Judson in 1953's "From Here to Eternity," the sweet, lonely butcher in 1955's "Marty" and the carefree con artist in the 1962-66 ABC comedy series "McHale's Navy," Borgnine was among the most recognizable faces on both the big and small screens.

I've seen him in several things in recent years and he looked better at 90 than most people do at 60.

Always liked him as an actor and what I heard and read about him as a human being. One of the few actors I would have liked to meet and talk with. His autobiography was a joy to read, which is a rarity indeed!
