Well, celeb #2 passes away: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2012/12/25/charles-durning-dies-actor/1790203/

Not only was he a great actor, he was also a war hero:

He was among the first wave of U.S. soldiers to land at Normandy during the D-Day invasion and the only member of his Army unit to survive. He killed several Germans and was wounded in the leg. Later he was bayoneted by a young German soldier whom he killed with a rock. He was captured in the Battle of the Bulge and survived a massacre of prisoners.
