George Kennedy was an actor with range. Starring in dozens of iconic films that include Cool Hand Luke, Spartacus, The Dirty Dozen, The Sons of Katie Elder and so many more. He continued to have success later on in his career as Ed Hocken in the Naked Gun films. His character in Creepshow 2 is one of the most loving characters in horror film history, like I personally believe no one could ever top him.
Rest easy, George. Thank you.
