    Wasn't considered a big Hollywood star but I always liked how he worked his roles. I appreciated his entertainment. I never realized he was a cop at one time. Thanks Dennis

    Dennis Farina Dead at 69.....

    Dennis Farina, a Chicago native and police officer who turned to acting, has died at 69 in Arizona, his publicist said today.



    Farina, best known as detective Joe Fontana on the long-running TV series "Law & Order," suffered a blood clot in his lung, publicist Lori De Waal said.

    Farina was an 18-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department, a detective who moonlighted on Chicago theater stages and in small movie roles. In the 1980s he was on the NBC television series "Crime Story."

    He then became one of the stars of "Law & Order," playing tough, nattily dressed Detective Joe Fontana.


    After graduating from high school, Farina decided to "get the Army out of the way" and served three years before returning to Chicago. He worked for a while at the South Water produce market until, on the advice of his older brother, a lawyer, he joined the police force and studied criminal justice at Truman Junior College.

    The actor is survived by his three sons, six grandchildren and the love of his life of 35 years, Marianne Cahill.....snip~

    People die every day, so what? Why recognize this one person when thousands go unnoticed?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Please go peddle that tripe elsewhere.

    Don't want to acknowledge someone's passing, that's fine, just don't bother posting in the thread.

    He was in the bar scene and Chuck's partner in Code of Silence. Although Chuck don't come into the bar until afterwards.

    Great minds think alike Cal.....Sorry I didn't see you put this up. Maybe we can get a Mod to merge the threads. I threw up a video of with him in it when he did Code of Silence with Chuck Norris.

    He passes and Kate gives birth to a baby boy ... Coincidence?

    Coincidence or not, RIP ... good actor, have no idea if he was a decent man, but married that long, probably was ...

    Survivors include sons Dennis, Michael and Joseph and six grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The 100 Club of Chicago, which provides for the families of police officers, firefighters and paramedics who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Funeral services are pending.
