goodbye to one of the good ones

01/24/1917 to 07/08/2012
Ernest made a good heavy.  Yet when we saw that big smile rise on his broad face, we knew that this big man was really a good guy after all.  Ernest Borgnine played hundreds of roles throughout his 70 year career, but he'll fondly be remembered by us boomers as our favorite fictional P.T. Boat Commander Lt. McHale in McHale's Navy.  It is said that it's the role that was closest to who this soul really was. Ernie was one of the good ones.
