Ernest Borgnine, the legendary actor perhaps best known for his role in the movie "Marty," passed away today at the age of 95.

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

Borgnine won an Oscar for "Marty" in 1955 and also starred in movies such as "From Here to Eternity" and "Bad Day at Black Rock."

On the small screen, Borgnine played Quinton McHale in the 1960s show "McHale's Navy."

Borgnine served a total of 10 years in the United States Navy, the last four coming after he re-enlisted when the U.S. entered World War II.

We all know Mr Borgnine was great in Mckale's Navy but he could do alot more than just comedy. Check him out in 1969's The Wild Bunch, he was great in that role. RIP

He was always one of my favorites. I remember watching McHale's Navy after school. He will be missed.

Ernest.... not only a talented versatile actor who could play the heavy as convincingly as the dullard,
he was a man's man who served twice defending your family, mine and our country while at war, while still being one of the sweetest, most honest, grounded and likable people you'd probably ever meet.

Not only a curtain call for entertainment sake,
yet a damn good human for humanities sake.

God be with you Ernest.
Thanks for being with us.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Borgnine a number of times a few years back, while he had his "Sun Bum" motor home in our shop for service, A true gentleman who loved to talk about racing and his motor home travels with us.He always made us feel like we were true friends and looked forward to his visits. He will truly be missed by all.

Love watching Ernest Borgnine in any of his wide range of roles, From Here to Eternity to Red. Seeing his humor and humbleness in interviews made appreciating him in a role that much easier. Funny, lovable, old school, and classic Hollywood. RIP
