End of the Game (Der Richter und sein Henker; Deception; Getting Away with Murder; Murder on the Bridge) (1975) [Walter Tschanz]: Killed in a car crash (possibly suicide). (Thanks to Fred)

The Champ (1979) [Billy Flynn]: Fatally beaten during a boxing match, he dies in his dressing room shortly afterwards, with his son (Rick Schroeder) and trainer (Jack Warden) by his side.

Runaway Train (1985) [Oscar 'Manny' Manheim]: Killed (off-screen) in a train crash after he disconnects the engine from the rest of the train in order to save Eric Roberts and Rebecca De Mornay. The movie ends before the actual crash; we only see him standing atop the engine as it heads towards its destruction, but the implication of his fate is obvious.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven (2004) [Eddie]: Crushed to death when a wagon falls on him after he pushes a little girl out of the way; the rest of the movie takes place in the afterlife. (Thanks to Tal and ND)
