    He came to a bad end.

    Вообще можно найти с десяток оборотов, но, чтобы действительно было красиво, их надо выбирать в контексте и подбирать сообразно общего стиля изложения.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    What meaning do you want?
    -He died poorly?
    or
    -He finished (sexually) poorly?

    And if the former, what do you mean exactly? He died in a really bad way (being decapitated, for example)? He died in an inefficent way (it took two hours for the lethal injection to work?)? He died in a cowardly fashion?
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    "плохо кончить" means actually to die. Death in this case is a consequence to some action which led to it.

    "Он занимался темными делами. Неудивительно, что он плохо кончил".
    "Он обожал пинать охранника банка, в конце концов он плохо кончил".

    He ended up being nothing to anyone.
    He ended up a loser.

    (more context would help)

    He ended up dead - the most likely scenario!
    He ended up bad (or - badly).

    He ended up in deep sh!t
    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.
