By The Associated Press

BURLINGTON, Washington (AP) ' A veteran whose World War II exploits were depicted in the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers," has died, his family said.

Lynn D. "Buck" Compton died Saturday in Burlington, Washington, after having a heart attack last month, the family told the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/AmfhYe ).

In January, nearly 200 guests, including actors from the miniseries, attended his 90th birthday party, the Skagit Valley Herald (http://is.gd/XScV1b ) reported.



Lynn Compton also is remembered for his legal career in California. He headed the team that prosecuted Sirhan B. Sirhan for the slaying of Robert F. Kennedy.
