Bobo sends us the sad news that John Gavin (born Juan Vincent Apablasa) has passed at the age of 86. He was known for his roles in A Time to Love and a Time to Die (1958), Spartacus (1960), and Psycho (1960).

According to Wiki, he was a Navy veteran;

During the Korean War, Gavin was commissioned in the U.S. Navy serving aboard the USS Princeton offshore Korea where he served as an air intelligence officer from 1951 until the end of the war in 1953. Due to Gavin’s fluency in both Spanish and Portuguese, he was assigned as Flag Lieutenant to Admiral Milton E. Miles until he completed his four-year tour of duty in 1955.

He received an award due to his work in the Honduras floods of 1954.

He also served as Ronald Reagan’s ambassador to Mexico (1981–86).
