Joseph Siravo, the actor who is perhaps best known for his role as Tony Soprano’s father in HBO’s “Sopranos, was from Rockville. Sadly, he passed away this past April following a battle with colon cancer at the age of 66.
Credited as being from Washington DC, Siravo was raised in Rockville. He attended high school in DC, graduating from St. John’s College High School in 1973. According to records, he owned a home off of Norbeck Road until 2011.
Siravo gained worldwide popularity for his role as Johnny Soprano, who was featured prominently in flashbacks on HBO’s “Sopranos.”
He later went on to recently portray Fred Goldman in FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”
He made his film debut in 1993’s “Carlito’s Way.”
