Bill Guarnere of Band of Brothers Fame Dead At Age 90
World War II Veteran Bill Guarnere who was portrayed on TV's "Band of Brothers," died at the age of 90 this Saturday.
"Friends and family are mourning the death of a
national hero. William 'Wild Bill' Guarnere, a South Philly native and
World War II vet who was portrayed on the television miniseries, 'Band
of Brothers,' died on Saturday at the age of 90.
"Guarnere's son, William Guarnere Jr.,
confirmed Sunday that his father died at Jefferson University Hospital
in Philadelphia. Guarnere was rushed to the hospital early Saturday and
died of a ruptured aneurysm early Saturday night."
Those brave men and women who made up "The Greatest Generation" are becoming fewer and fewer. Their stories need to be preserved for future generations.
Here are videos of Bill portrayed in the show, as well as an actual interview with Guarnere in his South Philadelphia home.
