Barnard Hughes in 'Midnight Cowboy'
Barnard Hughes' death (possibly) in 'Midnight Cowboy'
Barnard Hughes (1915 - 2006)
Midnight Cowboy (1969) [Towny]: Possibly killed when Jon Voight shoves a telephone receiver in his mouth after beating him up in a hotel room. (The movie never actually confirms whether the assault was fatal, although it is pretty strongly implied.)

Cold Turkey (1971) [Dr. Proctor]: Accidentally shot by Bob Newhart, who had mistaken the gun for a cigarette lighter. (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Dave)

Da (1988) [Da]: Dies of old age/natural causes; he continues to appear to his son (Martin Sheen) as a spirit or vision throughout the movie. (I haven't seen this movie myself, but I know the basic premise.)
