I don't think this is a dupe. Sad news indeed. His manager on Facebook stated his passing. I looked it up on many sites and have seen quite a few things about both-still alive and hoax. That is a pretty sick and twisted hoax if that is true. He seemed like a super nice, down to Earth kind of guy despite his popularity/stardom.

Just saw that also. RIP Gunny.... Semper Fi.

We met him this past November at the GSSF Gunny match in Talladega. Super nice, took time to talk to everyone, including my 3 kids who knew his voice from Toy Story. He even told them a Toy Story 4 was in the works....

He was a force for good, IMO. RIP sir!

Gunny didn't die. He popped smoke, broke contact, and withdrew to heaven to regroup.

I was really hoping this was a hoax. He was one of the tough guys you just rooted for. I always watched Mail Call and had it recorded on my AT&T box but now that I have switched providers, they are gone. He was an amazing guy and great American.
