It has been revealed that actor and former police officer Dennis Farina‘s passing on Monday in Scottsdale, Arizona was due to complications from lung cancer.
“He had a small cancer 13 years ago that was treated and cured with surgery,” his cardiologist said in a statement. “Over the last several months, he unfortunately experienced a recurrence of the cancer which was being treated.

Farina, 69, appeared in more than 70 movies and TV shows in his lifetime. His credits include Luck, Law and Order, Reindeer Games, Snatch, Out of Sight and Get Shorty with James Gandolfini (RIP). Continue reading “Real-Life and TV Cop Dennis Farina Died of Complications From Lung Cancer”
