"Donald Malarkey, who received the Bronze Star for his heroic service during the Normandy landings, passed away on Friday from age-related issues in Salem, Oregon, his son-in-law said.
He was one of several members of the famous Easy Company portrayed in the 2001 HBO miniseries in which he was played by Scott Grimes.
Malarkey served in France, Belgium and the Netherlands and was presented with France's highest military award, the Legion d'Honneur, in 2009.
On D-Day, Malarkey and his comrades parachuted behind enemy lines in Normandy to destroy German artillery.
And in Bastogne in December 1944 he fought off German advances while surrounded during the Battle of the Bulge.
Malarkey was haunted by memories of combat and the devastation of losing fellow soldiers and friends, his family members said".
