Bruce MacVittie has passed away at the age of 65.

The sad passing of the much-loved The Sopranos and Law & Order actor was confirmed on Thursday by his grieving family.

The actor's wife, Carol Ochs, confirmed his sad death to the New York Times, confirming he passed away on May 7 from an unknown cause at a hospital in New York City.
