For anyone who knows the story of Easy Company, you know that a true hero has been lost.

BURLINGTON, Wash. (AP) β€” Lynn D. "Buck" Compton, a veteran whose World War II exploits were depicted in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers," has died, his family said.

Compton died Saturday in Burlington, Wash., after having a heart attack last month, the family told the Los Angeles Times ( ) in a story Tuesday.

In January, nearly 200 guests, including actors from the miniseries, attended his 90th birthday party, the Skagit Valley Herald ( ) reported.

"To us he wasn't really a war hero, he was just a hero, period,"

Its a sad day, hate seeing anybody pass on but its the only guarantee all of us get in life Major Dick Winters said it best.

β€œOne day my grandson said to me, grandpa were you a hero in the war? And i said to him no I'm not a hero, but I have served in a company full of them.”
