    The article said he was from Westwood, NJ, he was born there at Pascack Valley Hospital which is. Westwood, he actually grew up in Park Ridge, NJ.  His father was on the faculty of Paramus Catholic HS.  
    Many mob related movies and show depict Italians to be low class and uneducated, as an American whose great great grandparents were from Italy, this is troubling, however the sopranos for the most part avoided this and showed "Tony" as a regular father/husband, who ran an illicit crime empire, but did so with heart and love for his family and friends.  
    None the less, 51 is to young to pass, may he rest in heaven in the comfort of Jesus and GODS arms.
