The World War Two sailor who famously kissed a nurse in Times Square is dead.  Glenn McDuffie passed away earlier this week at the age of 86. 

The famous “LIFE” magazine photo featuring McDuffie locking lips with the nurse was taken in August 1945 after Japan surrendered to the U.S. 

The photo has been imitated hundreds of times by Hollywood and other magazines since it was taken. 

McDuffie was identified as the sailor in photo in 2007 by a forensic examiner.  His family plans to bury McDuffie at Dallas-Fort Worth Veterans Cemetery. (Metro Networks Inc.)
