Ermes Effron Borgnino) (January 24, 1917 – July 8, 2012)

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Ernest Borgnine, the beefy screen star known for blustery,
often villainous roles, but who won the best-actor Oscar for playing against type
as a lovesick butcher in "Marty" in 1955, died Sunday. He was 95.

His longtime spokesman, Harry Flynn, told The Associated Press that Borgnine
died of renal failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with his wife and children at
his side.

Borgnine, who endeared himself to a generation of Baby Boomers with the 1960s
TV comedy "McHale’s Navy," first attracted notice in the early 1950s in villain roles, notably as the vicious Fatso Judson, who beat Frank Sinatra to death in "From Here
to Eternity."
