November 3, 1921 – August 30, 2003

Born Charles Dennis Buchinsky, Charles Bronson was a classic Hollywood tough guy.  In addition to starring turns in such iconic movies as The Dirty Dozen, The Magnificent SevenThe Great Escape and Death Wish, he was also a B-29 gunner in World War II. He received a Purple Heart.  He was a total badass.

Alas, even badasses get pneumonia and die.  Which is just what Bronson did after a successfully lengthy career and a brief battle with Alzheimer’s.

Burial
