James Gandolfini died on June 19, 2013, at the age of 51. The Sopranos star passed away suddenly from a heart attack while on vacation in Rome, Italy with his family.
Gandolfini also known as Tony Soprano remains a household name due to his iconic jokes and incredible acting. Today, ten years later, his fans and co-stars, among others, paid tribute to the television icon on social media.
Aside from portraying an Italian-American mob boss for six seasons, he was so much more than a Soprano. Gandolfini was a loyal friend, loving father, and overall good person.
Michael Gandolfini, the son of the late actor posted a heartfelt message to Instagram on Sunday with the caption “Happy Father’s Day Dad. I love you. Today, tomorrow, and everyday. I miss you, I love you.”
Gandolfini starred in countless films and was the winner of three Emmy Awards, one Golden Globe, and five Screen Actor Guild Awards.
The New Jersey native will never be forgotten and has only become more popular over the years. (I don’t think there’s one day that goes by that my father isn’t watching The Sopranos.)
