The decorated former real-life Marine Corps drill instructor served in Vietnam and loaned his knowledge and experience to add realism to movies that include "Apocalypse Now" and "The Boys In Company C", according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The part he would become most well-known for, in "Full Metal Jacket", wasn't even originally his.
It's gone down in history as one of the film's most iconic scenes.
Ermey, that functioned in Vietnam, is best remembered as the drill sergeant in rsquo & Kubrick;s 1987 picture, that tried to reverse "rdquo & maggot; Critics like Joker, played with Matthew Modine, into Marines".
Rogin says that while his characters were often hard and principled, the real Ermey was a family man and a kind and gentle soul who supported the men and women who serve. He was generous to everyone around him.
According to Kubrick, Ermey also had a awful vehicle accident one night in the middle of production and was out for four and half months with broken ribs. And, we will honor his memory with hope and kindness. "My demeanor happens to be a bit more authoritative and film directors, producers want to capitalize on that". He made dozens of other appearances in film and television, a number of them in military roles.
Ronald Lee Ermey was born in Emporia, Kansas, on March 24, 1944.
Ermey is survived by his wife of 43 years, Nila Ermey, and their four children.
