Dale Van Sickel (1907 - 1977)
Mr. and Mrs. North (1942) [Corpse of Stanley Brent]: Killed (off-screen) by Stuart Crawford; his body is shown afterwards when Gracie Allen opens the closet door and Dale falls out.

Storm Warning (1951) [Walter Adams]: Beaten to death by Steve Cochran during a lynching.

Perry Mason: The Case of the Silent Six (1965) [Joe Oliver]: Shot to death by David Macklin in Chris Noel's apartment. (Thanks to Dignan)

(Note: As a professional stunt performer, Dale probably "died" in place of other actors, though I don't know any specific examples. Additionally, he probably died in several more of his generic "Thug" and "Henchman" bit parts, though the above films are the only ones I know definitely.)
