4. Oh this is terrible news. I adore this man, always have, always will. "Tombstone":

"Well - bye"

And Frailty, a little seen gem directed by/starring the also dearly departed Bill Paxton.

RIP, good sir, and safe travels.

18. In 2007 he divorced Pam to marry a younger woman with whom he has two young children

He was with first wife Pam for nearly 40 years before leaving her for 2nd wife

I always found him entertainingly charismatic playing charming but flawed and complex characters
