2. James Gandolfini’s Body Was Found by Michael

Michael found his father collapsed in their hotel room late last night (Wednesday) and immediately called for help. The Huffington Post reports that:

The manager of the hotel in Rome where Gandolfini and his son were staying told the “Today” show the young boy found his father collapsed in the bathroom around 10 p.m. local time Wednesday.

When James Gandolfini’s first wife, Marcy Wudarski, heard the horrible news, she immediately flew to Italy to be at her son’s side who was with his father on the fateful trip.

Michael just graduated the eighth grade. The Italy trip was an opportunity for James and Michael to share some quality time. The trip was said to be in celebration of Michael’s eighth grade graduation as well as to attend Taormina Film Festival in Sicily. What a horrible turn of events for the father-son get-away.

Michael is just a normal kid who loves sports. He’s seen in a host of pictures at basketball games with his dad and his facebook has several photos dedicated to hockey.

5. James’ Son is Not the Only Child Left Behind

It’s sad to say that James Gandolfini also has an 8-month old daughter named Liliana by his wife Deborah Lin. It’s sad and unfortunate that this little girl won’t be able to grow up with a father.

Thankfully, she will always be able to watch his movies and shows to get an idea of who her father was as well as how talented he was.
