    I sat across Mr. Borgnine at the airport in Raleigh NC about 40 years ago and I was very impressed how handsome he was in person. He always played men that weren't especially handsome in the movies, but he was very handsome in real life. It's sad to lose such a fine actor, but gratifying to learn that he lived a very long life.


    He was first class. Did commencemnt speech at Albertus Magnus College when my sister got her degree. Met him later on at a pizza joint in North Haven, Ct. We had a lot of fun. My Mom was head over heels over him and he was one of my Dads favorites. He was everyones favorite. Bless him....Toni


    A sweet man and true gentleman.


    My husband and I loved this man as an actor and a human being. he was an honest man who lived and treated his fellow actors with support and respect. He cared about his fans and unlike today, he never took his fame for granted. He wrote a book recently I highley recommend it, it gives one a glimpse into this humbles man;s life and experiences in the military, film & television. he was a class act, and he will be missed. sympathies to Tovah & the rest of his family.
