Over the weekend, we lost another great TV/film legend. Oscar-winning actor Ernest Borgnine passed away on Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 95.
He died of renal failure while at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with his wife and children at his side. Plans for a burial service have not been announced, reports CBSLA.com.
Many fans remember watching Ernest play the title character on the hit TV sitcom McHale’s Navy, which ran from 1962-66, but it was his early film career that made him a star. In 1955, Ernest won the Oscar for his honest portrayal in Marty, playing a man who feared he was so unattractive, he would never find love.
His other roles include From Here To Eternity, Johnny Guitar, Vera Cruz and Bad Day at Black Rock.
This morning, The K-EARTH 101 Morning Show shared memories of his fun-loving personality and the story of how Lisa Stanley’s father created McHale’s Navy specifically for Ernest Borgnine.
