Well, he had a long run.  Loved him best when he would play a mean bastard, like in Emperor Of The North or Convoy.

Damn. Sad to see him go.

And yesterday, I was watching Laser Mission and thinking about how cool it was that he was still around. God speed, sir.

I think of the TV show McHale's Navy first when thinking about him, then his film roles.

Mermaid Man, no!

I forgot about that one! I'm going to watch Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders in honor. He had such a great face; made me smile every time.

95 is a fantastic age for a guy who was generally overweight his entire life.  Just from his demeanour, you could tell he enjoyed the hell out of his time here.

RIP.

Crazy. And here I not only just watched The Poseidon Adventure for the first time early last week, but I also went online to check Mr. Borgnine's living status. Noting he was still alive at the time, I went on with my day. And here we are. Go figure.

Yeah, he seemed like a hell of a guy. And that's a crazy age to live to no matter how you slice it, so good on him for making it that far and for the great career he had behind him. RIP indeed.

He was one of the lead Masons at my grandfather's lodge (I can say that, right?). Not as sad or surprised as I thought I'd be considering there's a faint family connection. I knew he was very, very old and knew this day would come. It's sad overall tho. Mickey Rooney, on the other hand, will outlive us ALL!
