HOUSTON (AP) –  A man who became known for claiming he was the sailor
kissing a woman in Times Square in a famous World War II-era photo taken
by a Life magazine photographer has died.

Glenn McDuffie died March 9 in a nursing home in Dallas, according to his
daughter, Glenda Bell.

A mail carrier and semi-professional baseball player after he returned from
World War II, McDuffie’s life became more exciting about six years ago when
Houston Police Department forensic artist Lois Gibson was able to identify
him as the young man leaning over the woman in his arms to kiss her.
