    Wow, sorry to hear that. He has always been a favorite actor of mine, and starred in some great films.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      Great actor, seemed like a decent guy in real life, enjoyed his auto racing and charitable work. We used some of his lines from Cool Hand Luke on the job all the time. "shak'in it here boss". He will be missed. Rest In Peace.

        I guess this means I can finally throw out my 15 year old salad dressing of "Newman's Own".

        Somebody snapped a picture of him last year or this year at a nascar race that showed him in a crumbling state; he didn't look good at all.

        You gotta feel for a guy that had it all through life that most would want, but to be a prisoner of a "once was" and then see how people react when you're not doing good is something else.

        They blasted that picture of him all over entertainment tonight and access hollywood and I really don't think anyone ever saw him again in the public eye.....what a shame.

        Just goes to show you that it doesn't matter who you are and how much money you have.....cancer stops you.
