Well, celeb #2 passes away: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/p...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.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

They do not make actors like that anymore. He will be missed. RIP.--Odysseus

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
