I don't usually follow celebrity news, but I recognised his name in the headline on a news page, and immediately knew who he was. He was so very good as Eddie in Omerta.
Then I looked at his imdb page:
He appeared in so many movies/TV shows, which I always think is a sign that he was not only a good actor but also a good guy on set/in real life.
He was only 65. Apparently, he contracted an infection following melanoma surgery. He's survived by his long-term partner, Darryl Armbruster.

It's amazing how many deaths there were in 2016, and yet I was amazed at what Snopes.com said ~
Wikipedia has posted a list of deaths in 2016. May they all rest in peace.
Having shared this information, I now come to the reason for this new post. Revealing my age, I grew up watching Debbie Reynolds performing, and now I can add her very talented daughter. Just like most of you, I totally understand Debbie's heartache since I too have lost many loved ones, including my oldest son at 39 in 2008. I gave birth to three sons and one daughter.
First, on January 7, 2017 on HBO, there will be a documentary aired about Debbie, Carrie, and I assume the whole family, titled, "Bright Lights," that I am so looking forward to.
I am positive that everyone's heart goes out to Todd. What a painful experience losing your mother and sister within 2 days.
I have been especially touched by artwork images of Debbie and Carrie that have been posted online of the two of them together, and one picture of them in Heaven. I was so very compelled to share them here, as well as a Star Wars art image.
May all those we have lost, not just in 2016 but in our own lifetimes, rest in peace with our love and appreciate of their talents and gifts they have blessed us with.
