His death was announced by longtime manager Bill Rogin, who tweeted Sunday evening that Ermey had succumbed to complications from pneumonia.

"He will be greatly missed by all of us", Rogin said.

After his military career ended, Ermey performed in Apocalypse Now, Leaving Las Vegas, Se7en and Dead Man Walking, but his signature role was that of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket in 1987 after he was originally hired as a technical advisor for the movie.

Ermey went on to play a variety of authoritative characters in more than 70 films, as well as in several television series and video games. And, he especially cared deeply for others in need.

His service experience helped inform his onscreen work in "Full Metal Jacket", remembered as a rare instance in which Kubrick entertained improvisation on his sets. Please support your men and women in uniform. He was initially presupposed to be a technical adviser, however Kubrick supplied him the function of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman after seeing a demo tape of Emery railing at extras. He was also a drill instructor for the Marines. It's actually the Riflemen's Creed. "There are many Gunny's, but this one was OURS", Rogin said. You can also read a statement posted to Ermey's Twitter account today by his manager below. That's what he wanted most of all.

Ermey was a former United States Marine Corps staff sergeant and honorary gunnery sergeant, and served as a drill instructor during his tenure from 1961-1972. And, we will honor his memory with hope and kindness.

He appeared in 60 films during his career, including Mississippi Burning, Toy Soldiers, On Deadly Ground, Murder In The First, and more.

Ermey later branched out to TV shows and movies such as Toy Story 1, 2 and 3.

Ermey is survived by his wife Nila whom he married in 1975, and the four children they share.

In addition to his acting, he hosted two programs for the History Channel: "Mail Call", in which he gave expertise on military issues, and "Lock N' Load with R. Lee Ermey", which focused on the development of weapons.
