Major Dick Winters was a veteran of Company E, 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. His story was told in the book and HBO TV series "Band of Brothers".

Dick Winters died right after New Years 2011. His family didn't announce his death until after his funeral, which was on January 3, I believe.
