Abe Vigoda Dead At 94











Abe Vigoda, known for his 'sad face' and role of 'The Godfather' as 'Salvatore Tessio' as well as 'Detective Phil Fish' on the sitcom 'Barney Miller' has passed away at the age of 94. He died in his sleep in Woodland Park, New Jersey at the home of his daughter Carol Vigoda Fuchs. He was of Russian-Jewish descent.

Vigoda was a broad way actor who rose to fame. His role on 'The Godfather' was a boost. He played the role of 'Tessio' who was a childhood friend of 'Vito Corleone.' The character would later be 'sent to swim with the fishes' after it is learned that he betrayed the 'Corleone' family in favor of the 'Barzini' family after 'Vito Corleone' chose his son 'Michael' played by Al Pacino to head the 'family business' instead of 'Tessio.' After the movie, he starred in the comedy 'Barney Miller' until 1982 when he left the show. Shortly afterwards, 'People Magazine' made a mistake when it reported that he had died.

On his website, http://www.abevigoda.com/, Vigoda kept running with the mistake announcing his death in 1982 with a meme with two X's on his eyes.  May he rest in peace.
