Abe Vigoda has indeed passed on at the wonderfully old age of 94. We all have our favorite characters he portrayed. I loved Fish... that sweet, gassy, tired detective on Barney Miller. His many characters will live on in films and TV. He had that kind of face that drew people in. He could look silly or downright menacing. He was a father and a consummate actor. His family were also neighbors of mine growing up... having an apartment across the street from where I spent my teenage years hanging out at Cuomo's Pizzeria in West New York, NJ. I remember fairly innocent make-out sessions in his apartment with his daughter and a few of her girlfriends and my pals (I was hung up on one of her tall friends). His daughter Carol loved him so much. He lived, loved and passed away in New Jersey... always a Jersey boy.
So, rumors aside... he lives on. Always.
