He was one of our own.
Ten years in the Sea Service.
I shall miss him. I have grandchildren who know him from Sponge Bob. He touched so many generations.
He was one of us.
I always liked his performance in Marty.

The sad news has just broken of the death of iconic character actor Ernest Borgnine. Known to anyone in the Baby-Boomer generation who did not live in a cave as the skipper of PT-73, Commander Quinton McHale of McHale’s Navy, Borgnine was in actuality a Navy Veteran who enlisted in 1935 and served throughout World War II.
