R. Lee Ermey, RIP

Very sad news: Marine D.I., actor and television personality R. Lee Ermey has died at age 74.

I am embedding a video of a hilarious GEICO commercial in which Ermey plays a shrink in D.I. mode.

God rest his soul.

Update: Sorry, the original link to the obit went bad; I have replaced it with another article.

Sad indeed. He was so enjoyable to watch. May God reward him.

It's upsetting that it was from "complications from Pnumonia". I had the same feeling when Ernest Borgnine passed from a condition that was preventable.

A disappearing breed - a real man, not a watered down soy-boy.

RIP, Gunny.

I'm sad to hear Gunny has passed from the scene. He was one of a kind. And I absolutely loved that Geico commercial (loathe most of them).

Btw, the article you linked to denied me access. I have no idea why.
