James Gandolfini, who personified the New Jersey mobster in HBO's acclaimed series The Sopranos, died on June 19, apparently of a heart attack, while on vacation in Rome, the network said. He was 51.
PARK RIDGE, N.J. (AP) - A private viewing for James Gandolfini is scheduled for Wednesday in a small northern New Jersey town.
The invitation-only wake for family and friends will be held at the Robert Spearing Funeral Home in Park Ridge between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m.
The 51-year-old star of "The Sopranos," who grew up in nearby Westwood, died last Wednesday in Italy.
