Well, this sucks. What’s up with all this death lately? I’m getting tired of it. Too much death going around. Apparently Farina had a blood clot in his lung and has passed away at the age of 69. That’s a long life, but not long enough.
Farina — who was born in Chicago in 1944 — is survived by his 3 adult children from his marriage to Patricia Farina. They divorced in 1980. He also has two granddaughters and four grandsons.
Farina’s rep says the actor is also survived by “the love of his life of 35 years, Marianne Cahill.” It doesn’t appear the two were ever married.
Before he became an actor, Farina was a cop with the Chicago Police Department from 1967 to 1985.
