Former professional football player
(on several different teams)
Screenwriter/director/producer
Black Caesar (The Godfather of Harlem) (1973) [Tommy Gibbs]: Beaten to death by a group of muggers outside a tenement building, on top of having been shot in the stomach by a hitman several scenes earlier. We see the beating, followed by a close-up of Fred's hand after the muggers run away. (The movie was so successful that the 1974 sequel Hell up in Harlem retroactively revealed that Fred's character was only wounded, but director/writer Larry Cohen has stated that this was originally intended as the character's death.)

1990: The Bronx Warriors (1990: I guerrieri del Bronx) (1982) [The Ogre]: Machine-gunned by Vic Morrow's soldiers; he dies shortly afterwards after collapsing into the flames. (Thanks to Johan)

Deadly Intent (1988) [Curt Slate]: Shot to death in a shoot-out with Steve Railsback. (Thanks to Michael)

From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) [Frost]: Impaled through the chest by Harvey Keitel with a shotgun made into a makeshift cross; he dies and melts into nothingness shortly afterwards. (Thanks to Joe)

Children of the Corn V: Fields of Terror (1998) [Sheriff Skaggs]: Stabbed to death by David Carradine. (Thanks to Michael)
