James Gandolfini Was An Incredible Father, According To Friends

james gandolfini father dad died italy rip pass son daughter wife sad

Like everyone in the world, we were super saddened to learn of James Gandolfini's passing last night, and beyond realizing the world had lost an astounding actor, everyone's minds shifted to his kids losing an incredible father.

In almost every interview, you would hear him mention or bring up his kids in one way or another — and it was always heartwarming. He left behind a 13-year-old son, who he was on a “boys trip” with in Italy when he passed. He also had an 8-month-old daughter, Liliana Ruth, who he had with his second wife, Deborah Lin.

Here's what one of his fellow actors and friend, Gilles Marini, said:

I am heartbroken. My bud James Gandolfini just died. Last Saturday he told me at our kids graduation ghat he was so happy to go with his son to Italy. A boy trip! It was an honor to have met this man, such a great Dad!

We can't even handle this. Everything we've ever heard about James was about how much of caring and kind soul he was. This world was much better when he was a part of it.

Our hearts go out to his family!

    Looks like his son was overweight as well….Good father's should watch what their children eat…especially when dad's overweight too and killed him at 51 years old…Obesity is NO joke and starts with parenting.

    His son is a fat fuck too. I guess we won't have to be visually assaulted by him for too much longer. Hopefully he'll die before he turns 21.

    This is why it is selfish to have kids later in life. He now has fatherless children. If you are 40 or over you missed the boat. Deal with it and get a puppy. Having a 21yo pushing you around in a wheel chair or killing over from a stroke while they are in high school is selfish. Older parents usually have the worst parenting skills as well cause they know they don't have as much time with the kid so they try to make up for it by being their buddy.
