July 22, 2014
What a loss. Dennis was a fantastic actor and so handsome. Rest in peace, Dennis.

God bless you brother, we met in Hollywood at Frankies place and we talked about our police work and being Paratroopers. You will be missed by all of us in those two worlds and more.

Mr Farina was lighting a prayer candle after mass at the St Louis Cathedral when he noticed me in my (NOPD)police uniform. He crossed himself as he finished his prayer, then reached out his hand with a "How's it goin, officer?" I proceeded to tease him about giving us guys with an Italian last name a bad rep. He immediately seized on the joke and good-naturedly engaged me in some back-and-forth barbs. GREAT cop-to-cop fun!! Deeply appreciated! Have SO much respect and admiration. I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Mr Farina's family for sharing him with all of us. THANK YOU!!!

Oh so handsome, debonair, elegant and fantastic dresser. As I watched Law & Order, I kept thinking do all NY cops have the cash to dress like a star? Classy man. I didn't know until now that you passed and am saddened. Bless you and what you gifted us along the way.
March 03, 2014
Just wanted the family and friends to know that Dennis was respected and admired
greatly by many, many
people.
He was a very distinguished, handsome man. Everything he did in life was with the greatest passion. With age he grew more handsome and more distinguished!! Actors like him are few and far between. He has been greatly missed! I know it's been since July 22, 2013 since his passing, but I still think of him often. He seemed to radiate with every character he portrayed. Continued comfort and prayers are with you all.
January 15, 2014
i'm going to miss you Dennis. I truly hope your in a better place. You were a good friend, and a great police officer and actor.

I loved seeing Dennis Farina quietly standing in the back of church, Blessed Sacrament, in Scottsdale, when he was in town. As a community, we respected his privacy when he was at Mass. But, I felt he was a humble soul and didn't want the attention. He would smile, nod his head to say hello, but seemed to be just another parishioner and nothing else.
He was a great, diverse actor who will be missed.
September 06, 2013
Marianne,

Marianne - I worked with you in Chicago during the late '90's. I remember Dennis calling for you on the phone @ work and how respectful and polite he was. I am so sorry for your loss. -Nancy Dailey.
August 30, 2013
I echo Sandy's sentiments. He is an irreplaceable talent. His authenticity came through in every role he took on. Warmest regards
August 22, 2013
Marianne and Farina Family: My heart goes out to you all. He will be missed. The consummate actor, we loved him well. I will keep you in my prayers. I was in Europe at the time of his passing and just found out about this tragedy.
August 19, 2013
To the Farina Family:
My heartfelt condolences go out to you at this sad time; it was such an unexpected tragedy and he seemed like a charming and nice guy. He will be definetly missed.

He was a Great Actor and a Great human been.
August 10, 2013
When I asked if he got the nickname "The Great Wounder" because he was a heartbreaker, he laughed and explained that it was because in his career as a cop, he wasn't that good of a shot. Even in everyday conversation his delivery was impeccable. My sympathy to his family and his love on the loss of a man I will always remember as gracious and genuine.
August 06, 2013
I absolutely LOVED him in everything he did. He could be tough, he could be funny and he was always charming. He will most deinitely be missed. My thoughts are with his family at this time. God bless.
August 06, 2013
I loved to see him on the screen; he just oozed Chicago and cop. Loved him on Law and Order. He brought a dose of reality to that show. God bless him and keep him.
August 05, 2013
I know he will be missed..He was one of my favorite actors. Loved him in That Old Feeling...My sympathies to the Family. MaryAnn Worek

Dear family of Dennis: A few years ago we took the Metra train from Kenosha to Chicago. Patricia spotted a corner restraunt downtown noticing lots of interesting people going in. It was Gene and Georgettis. We ordered lunch at the bar and the owner happened to be there. We noticed a photo of Dennis Fraina on the wall! We asked why our favorite Law and order cop was there. The owner explained that he and Dennis went to the same high school and that Dennis would return for reunions and or fund raisers.What a guy. God love him and give you comfort. We are going to order his movies on dvd so we can see himn again. We have been back to the restraunt several times and the food is great.
July 31, 2013
You will be missed. Don Roth, Retired tactical Sergeant, 20th District.

A regular Chicago guy makes good. A first class cop, actor and human being. Ciao, Dennis. God Bless.
July 30, 2013
He was a great actor you could tell he was a cop from everything he knew about it. RIP to a tribute to police men and women everywhere.
July 30, 2013
Dennis, you will be truly missed. Maybe now the Cubs will have an angel working on their behalf! Rest in peace.
July 30, 2013
We at Pottawattomie will miss Dennis very much. Those of us that were close to him feel his loss deeply, and I personally considered him a dear friend. To Marianne and his family I send my deepest sympathies. Dennis was as kind and generous a man as I have ever known and I will cherish my friendship with him forever.

An impressive and very talented actor upon whom I had the pleasure of working with countless times when I was one of the prop guys who supplied countless Picture cars, etc on the set of "Crime Story". Dennis could be a very comical guy too, Especially when fellow co-actor Andrew Dice Clay was at the lunch table. We often exchanged jokes and encountered many stomach grabbing laughs from one another. He was also by total coincidence the Chicago copper who wrote me up my very first Chicago traffic ticket in 1974 while I was driving my then 15 year ole 59, Ford sedan that again coincidentally, Dennis would be driving 12-13 years later on the set of filming Crime Story in Chicago. He was a fun guy upon whom will be missed greatly, deeply, and sincerely. My regrets go out to all his fellow Family, Friends and Fans whom loved em.
July 30, 2013
Condolences to the Farina family. Dennis entertained many with his believable characters and talent. We appreciated them all but even more was his devotion to his family. As he sleeps awaiting his call to life again on this beautiful earth when only peace will reside we will mourn his absence until then.
July 30, 2013
Loved Mr.Farina on Law and Order. I'll miss him.

to the farina family my condolences to you and your loved ones im sorry about the passing of dennis farina im a great fan of his he will be missed such a great person and a nice police officer of the Chicago police department and he was a great actor on tv shows what a special man may him rest in peace
July 30, 2013
Never had the priviledge of meeting Dennis, though we had a mutual friend in Joe Gagliano, retired CPD officer who knew Dennis very well and spoke highly of him. Dennis was admirably old school, a straight shooter, approachable, honest and sincere...a real gentleman. They don't make them like Dennis anymore on or off the silver screen. Condolences to the entire Farina Family. Dennis, may the Lord carry you gently in the Palm of His Hand into Our Father's Kingdom of Eternal Life.
July 30, 2013
The greatest testament, perhaps, I can offer with regards to the fervent, decades-long esteem in which I held Dennis Farina can be found in how CRIME STORY was the first TV series I ever purchased on DVD in its entirety. It's undisputable his previous employment experience allowed him to approach the role of cop or wiseguy from a truly authentic perspective, and no one save Gene Hackman in THE FRENCH CONNECTION rocked a 1960s porkpie hat like Dennis! Much as his family and his fans will miss him, maybe James Gandolfini rang him up because he knew the company would be top shelf.
July 30, 2013
FAINA FAMILY: MY SINCERE CONDOLENCE.I WAS SADDENED TO HEAR ABOUT DENNIS.WE CAME ON-THE-JOB AROUND THE SAME TIME-[I WAS ON THE WEST SIDE-FILLMORE DIST.].I REMEMBER DRIVING PAT CAMDEN [FILM UNIT] TO LAKE ST.,WHERE THEY WERE SHOOTING A SCENE-I THINK DENNIS WAS IN THAT.IT SEEMS LIKE AGES AGO.I WILL ALWAY'S CONSIDER DENNIS A BROTHER AND KEEP HIM IN MY MEMORY.

My deepest sympathy to the Farina family...I was shocked to hear about Dennis....I was a huge fan of his and never had the opportunity to meet him personally...watched all of his shows and saw his movies.....may his family find peace in the memories they have of him...he will be missed by many. My husband is a retired Chicago Police Officer and they have that common bond in the Police family.....may he rest in peace. Prayers to his family. A true gentleman for sure.

Sincerely

Met Dennis when he was a Det. in the old CPD/CIU Commanded by a very dear friend of mine. Dennis and I sat at the same wedding reception table on Harlem Ave. One of the nicest guys I had ever met and continued to know as the years passed. He never forgot from whence he came. A true old school Chicago guy. God Bless him and his family. Al Scarnavack,(Former CPD/ASA)Naples Florida

Just a fan since Crime Story days . I will truly miss you. And I am not the kind of person that tends to miss people. Dennis just had something real about him. So long.

To the Farina Family and Marianne,

Always enjoyed Dennis' acting and you could always see what a down to earth guy and special guy he was. Was lucky to see him once when he was in a restaurant with all his friends. You could tell his really enjoyed time spent with his friends. Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE FARINA FAMILY
July 29, 2013
Denny and I were friends during that turbulent summer of 1968 in Chicago. I went back to college that fall, and didn't see him again until we
ran into each other in an airport twenty years (and for me, twenty pounds) later. He recognized me first, and even though it had been many years, he took the time to catch up on my life. When I asked him about what was going on with him, he mentioned that he was "doing a little acting". I had seen him on TV but didn't think it could really be my old friend.
After all, how many of us can say we know a TV or movie star? He was a wonderful young man, modest, well mannered, even a bit shy, who turned into an incredible older gentleman.
My prayers and condolences go to his family, friends, and co-workers, both in law enforcement and the entertainment industry. Denny was one of a kind, and will be very much missed by many.
July 29, 2013

July 29, 2013
Dennis Farina was one of my favorite Italians. Crime story was the first time I saw him and I fell for him head over heels. Handsome rugged and a leader of men.I watched anything that Dennis was in because he was so handsome and stern when he needed to be but then on the other hand he did have his witty side. I was really shocked when I heard what happened. I I really wish that I could bring you back for all of us again.
God bless your family . You will be greatly missed

July 29, 2013
We didn't know him in person, but loved him as an actor and native Chicagoan nevertheless. My husband, Robert (Bob) Farina always joked that when he was asked if he was related to actor Dennis Farina, he replied, "Only if it gets me a seat in a restaurant faster!" We'll miss you from afar, "Cuzzin" Dennis!
July 29, 2013
I remember Mr. Farina coming to look at an apartment we had for rent in the early
1980's possibly Crime Story era.
I remember him standing in our vestibule
leaning over because he was so tall.
My husband and I both IMMEDIATELY tried
to place him by running to my husband's
video collection fast forwarding until we ran across his person on t v,
- a true Chicago memory!
July 29, 2013
I feel your lose for my father as you knew was just like you. You made me laugh so hard especially when you would stand next to me backhanding me in the stomach as you spoke.

July 29, 2013
I have been skimming over all the beautiful messages on these pages paying tribute to not just a great actor but obviously a wonderful and much loved man. I have never met Mr Farina but have followed his career and admired his acting talents for many years. The Chicago aspect was icing on the cake. As many here, I was very saddened to hear of his sudden passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr Farina and his entire family.

Please accept my deepest sympathies. The first time I saw Mr. Farina was in "Code Of Silence" with Chuck Norris and I have followed his career ever since. I wish I could have met him, I grew up in Chicago and love the Cubs, so I know we would have had a lot to talk about. I have heard of celebrities passing, but this is the first time I had tears. Mr. Farina was Chicago, and the city lost a friend. I am sorry.

Knew dennis for 15 years since he and Lt. nikeas worked out of foster ave. They didn't take everyone to jail for every "nuiscance crime".The way they treated those that had less was something Ill never forget. You didn't want to get to be one of the people in their "dirtbag" book though! Al Kraus
July 29, 2013
We have lost a great actor and a wonderful man, they don't make 'em like that anymore and it is the world's loss. I wish the Farina family and all who knew and loved Dennis peace and comfort during this sorrowful time. He was truly magnificent in every way.

To one fine actor and a really nice guy,you will be missed. I remember the Olivet and the "old neighborhood." My condolances to the family.
July 28, 2013
Dear Mr. Farina, I first saw you in "Crime Story" over 25 years ago and could tell even then that you were destined for enduring stardom. My late mother loved "Law and Order" and we were both thrilled when you joined the cast. Mom could never understand why you left the show. You were one-of-a-kind and the real deal, which shone through in everything you did. I hoped some day I could thank you in person for all the enjoyment you gave to me and my family over the years. Sadly, this expression of sympathy must suffice. Thank you, Mr. Farina, not only for your acting, but also for your service to our country and to your hometown of Chicago. Rest in Heavenly Peace. May God comfort and watch over your loved ones during this difficult time and always.
July 28, 2013
God gave Dennis a wonderful gift that he shared with all of us. God has also called him to come home. Thank you Dennis for making us smile while you were here. Our condolences to the entire Farina family. Bob & Monica DeLord

July 28, 2013
Dennis was a Chicago Icon and was truly one of Chicago's "very own". Although he was an excellent actor, what I admired most was his unfeigned Midwestern modesty and dedication to charity. His loss will is felt by the very heart of our city and leaves a void which cannot be filled. My sincere condolences to his family. He will be missed but not forgotten.
July 28, 2013

July 28, 2013
To the Family and Friends and Fellow Police Officers of Dennis Farina:
There are really no words to say that can ease the shock of Dennis's untimely death. He was not only a good actor but a fine and caring man. The deep voice, intense eyes and gorgeous head of white hair offered to his public a wholesome and kind looking man. His roles were fitting and especially the last role he played as a down and outer all alone in this world. Dennis was admired and respected and I know loved deeply by his family and will be missed. God works in strange ways some times and takes away these special people sooner than we hope for. May God watch over his loving family and may they know how much he will be missed by those of us who never met him. Dennis, rest in eternal peace, you have earned it.
July 28, 2013
Dennis had always made a big impression on me, especially since he had attended St. Mike's HS, as I. Also had been personally introduced & obtained his autograph by HS classmate at the Como Inn in 2000.
May you RIP, Dennis...........
July 28, 2013
Thank you, Mr. Farina, for all that you gave us as a police officer, in the military, and as an actor. I first saw you in Crime Story in 1986 and have enjoyed your work as an actor ever since. You will be missed. Thanks, again, for everything. Peace be unto your family and loved ones this time and always!!!
July 28, 2013
Thank you for your police service to Chicago and for the wonderful hours of entertainment!
July 28, 2013
It was the greatest thrill to personally meet Dennis Farina at the Como Inn in 2000 & get his autograph. I was at a HS reunion & he was at a special dinner. He had always made a great impression on me. So very sorry for the loss.......
July 28, 2013
May the Hearer of prayer give the family the comfort needed during this time of grief (Psalm 65:2). The Almighty is a refuge for us in times of distress. May you find relief in His promises of life again for our lost love ones like Dennis, found in His word during this time of sadness.

My wife and I never met Dennis. But he seemed like the type of person you could meet and call by his first name without hesitation.

Truly the entertainment world has lost a true man which in today's world is no longer stylish.

We will miss his gentleness and toughness which he portrayed with class and dignity as only a true man could do.

God Bless you, Dennis along with your family and friends.

July 26, 2013
Dennis had a home down the street from me. New Buffalo Michigan. Quaint small town on the lake and yes he had a regular home just like me. Small and quaint. He would ride by in his car waving just to say hey. He loved his convertible. He was always pleasant. I think this small town was his getaway. He would go about just like we do and nobody bothered him. I'm sure he appreciated it. I know I will miss seeing him drive by. Great person, greater loss.

I was born a month before you & did really enjoy your various Pilice roles.
My wife asked if I could use your suits. I would pass them along as they seem to be of good quality.
July 25, 2013
Was saddened to hear of Dennis death he will be missed by all who knew him. I had the pleasure of being his friend since his days as a detective at Area 6 Burglary to his intro to acting. He was a protector who I will forever be in his debt for helping me when I was in a downward spiral. A truly good guy. I will miss you Dennis F.

Dennis and I were from the same working class neighborhood in Chicago and he and his wife, Pat, were classmates of mine at St. Michaels Central. He was so cool back then with his black leather jacket and swagger when he walked. Dennis was a prince among men. A wonderful, wonderful person who never forgot where he came from and I was so proud to have known him. My sincerest condolences to his loved ones who have suffered such a loss. You got it right, Buddy. Well done! Willy '63

To the family of Dennis, may your memories bring you comfort.
July 25, 2013
My sincere condolences to his Family. He will be missed by many. My late Husband Richard O'Sullivan worked with him at Area 5 Robbery and Dennis was fairly new on the force. They referred to him as "The Kid". They always liked him and were very happy when he became so succesful. He did not allow the fame to affect him and always remembered his friends. He was indeed a wonderful man and an awesome actor. We saw just about every series or movie he was in. He was fantastic. May he rest in peace with his parents now. Sincerely Mrs. Lorelei O'Sullivan

As an huge Law and Order fan from the very start, I was sometimes unhappy with some of the changes over the years. But, when they brought Dennis in to portray Det Fontana, that was one of the decisions they made.
I loved the chemistry between the two characters Fontana aand and Green
Loved Crime Story also

My deepest sympathy to the family. Dennis was a fine police officer, and an excellent actor. I remember him in Crime Story, great show and I will purchase it on DVD. I have enjoyed his acting career, and his work for many years. As a retired deputy sheriff, I appreciated his work because I know he was a fellow officer, and it made me so proud to watch him in a crime or law enforcement role and know he had been there. His passing is a great loss not only to his fans, but to all of law enforcement. May God give you peace at this difficult time.
July 24, 2013

July 23, 2013
Dennis, you gave us kids from the old Chicago north avenue neighborhood a mentor and someone we could say we knew and loved and could relate to. You made us all proud. Humble beginnings living upstairs from may's dress shop, having a neighborhood doctor my parents knew and frequented. Knowing your sister, Bernadette, who worked at Moody's pub, and lived next doorvto me on vine street, going to St Mikes, waiting on you and Teddy and all the cops at Villa Palermo...you gave us a proud boasting voice that we knew you then and were privileged to watch you grow. Our hero. A true neighborhood success story.. Chicago lost a lot. North avenue and all it's old residents are in tears and are carrying a heavy heart. North avenue should have your name added to it in your honor. You will be sorely missed.
July 23, 2013

I'll never forget when I met Dennis 40 years ago at a restaurant on 63rd and Central across the street from Miday Airport. It was a place that we both were regular customers at . My Father ,two Uncles and my Cousin where Chicago policemen,so I related with him well. He worked the 8th district then. He was fun to shoot the bull with,and he had a great sense of humor. He was fun to be around. I didn't know it then ,but the waitress that used to wait on us later became. my wife. Now ex wife. My ex and I are deeply sadden to hear of his death. R.I.P. Dennis. I will never forget you. You will be deeply missed. George P. Romanoski (CORPUS CHRISTI TX.)
July 23, 2013
Marty and I will fondly remember this talented artist who brought a touch of class and refreshing approach to every role he portrayed. Extremely versatile, with a distinctive voice and a smile that could melt Antarctica , he was the “real deal”. “Crime Story” and “Law & Order” remain our particular TV favourites. We found him especially delightful in “Snatch”( his less than complimentary commentary on our homeland nothwithstanding). “Get Shorty, “Midnight Run” –we loved them all because he made it all so very special.

July 23, 2013
A wonderful man and mentor to many. His demeanor on set was exceptional and he was always one for quick joke. On the set of "Eddie", "Coach" had a father figure for all the young actors playing ball boys roles. An example of how our world should be treated as no one was a stranger. His family will have many memories of his love for them and his laughter. Molly Storick

July 23, 2013
First may I extend my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Dennis Farina. You are in my prayers.

When I was a 12 year old boy in a wheelchair I idolized Dennis Farina as Michael Torello in Crime Story. He gave hope to me that there really is justice in an unjust world.

For the next 27 years of my life I would always find that joy of seeing you in movies, like Saving Private Ryan. I was so proud to learn that you really were a police officer for Chicago. While in Los Angles studying for my PhD, I met people who really knew you, and they spoke so highly of you.

Words can not really honor how special you are to me.

Now I am 39 and walking tall. I will miss you dearly.
July 23, 2013
RIP Dennis.....We love you.....Angels Among Us......Prayers for the family.....
July 23, 2013
We will miss you! Have loved you since "Crime Story"! You were awesome!
July 23, 2013
Dennis was a class act in every aspect of life. That look and that voice cannot be duplicated. You will be missed! Rest in peace
July 23, 2013
What a loss; such a talented man. I have been a fan of Mr. Farina for as long as I remember and have always thought that in addition to his great talent, he was such a nice looking man. I am stunned reading the news of his passing. Just last week I pointed out to my daughter while watching repeats of Law & Order what a handsome man he was. He will certainly be missed. I wish him well as he proceeds with the next chapter.

i met Mr. Farina when I started working at CRC in 1994. What a real nice guy. No airs, no big I little you. When you met him it's like you always knew him. He came back in 2006 and he spoke just like we hadn't missed a beat. We laughed because we both agreed that he should have purchased a second pair of fabulously brown suede shoes. What an impeccable dresser. And did he have CLASS!! Lots of it. I will miss him. Thank you for the autograph (that you were surprised I'd ask for). I will cherish it always.

The world has lost a talented man. I knew Dennis Farina back when he lived in Chicago. We were neighbors and my daughter played with his youngest son.

One of my most favorite actors, all the blessings God can bestow on his family. A Chicagoan.

Mr. Farina, I was a big fan of your work. Law and Order, Midnight Run, Crime Story, Get Shorty and Luck all are among my favorites. You had a presence on screen that is so uncommon. And you reminded me of people I know. As a fellow Italian American, you made us proud with the portrayals you brought to screen, especially in Crime Story as the no-nonsense Italian cop seeking to lock up the mob, and in Law and Order as Det. Joe Fontana.

Rest in peace. My condolences to your family. You will be warmly remembered.
July 23, 2013
A lot of great stories of a great man rest in peace

July 22, 2013
To Cahill and the Farina Family, what a shock and loss to hear this untimely news. Dennis was one of those people that np matter the years that have passed, Dennis was the ultimate cop, friend and true Chicagoan. My husband and I go back many years from the "Job", to following his fabulous career in movies and television. There isn't enough space to tell the stories and fond memories of the 20th District, Slammers, and "The 5806 Club". Dennis was genuine, no pretenses, even on screen he was as believable as if he were sitting next to you, and a great laugh and sense of humor. We last saw in when he was honored along with Sam Joseph at the Italian-American Police Assoc. dinner here in Chicago. he never changed...Thank God.
July 22, 2013
What a wonderful person & actor!! Prayers to the family!!
July 22, 2013

I remember Dennis Farina in the show Crime Story in 1986-1987. That show was on channel 4 NBC. He played a gangster in the mafia. The series took place in 1950s, Chicago, Illinois. I was watching that when I was 18 and 19 years old.
July 22, 2013
Many hours of entertainment you have given me. I will miss not having the opportunity to see you. Rest well.
July 22, 2013
he was the greatest! RIP, my thoughts are with the family!
July 22, 2013
My deepest sympathies to the Farina family. Dennis was a very good actor and I enjoy several works of art that he completed, both serious and comical, ex. the annoying and strangely enough corrupt Captain. Detillo, who risked everything for his criminally insane and unstable son Jimmy, a detective with bad habits, serial killing and expressive force in "Striking Distance" and as Karen Cisco's (J. Lo) father Marshall Cisco in "Out of Sight" who offers father to daughter advice to Karen when she's a federal marshall hunting down career bank robber, Jack Foley "George Clooney" vs. That Old Feeling where he went toe to toe, mouth to mouth (literally and figuratively) with voluptious actress Bette Midler. Those two were unbelievable in that movie hating one another and finding spark in one another often at the drop of a hat - so hilarious - it was flipped back and forth quite a few times. Also, he demonstrated a high level of character portraying Albert Lombard in Miami Vice, the lone shark and crime boss who Crockett had a personal vendetta against when Lombard had one of Crockett's ex's killed, then next time around Crockett has to protect the man while in wit-sec and awaiting testifying against another criminal. Lombard in return displays a high level of honor amongst criminals by refusing to testify, not surprising for those in the criminal world, but still it's a moral code that he chooses to live by which puzzles Crockett with the amount of times the defendant had went after Lombard and Crockett figured Lombard would "burn" him just to get even. Those were my favorite works of Mr. Farina's. Granted only the movie That Old Feeling was probably one of his bigger roles in comparison to the others with lead male supporting role as Captain Detillo as next best, all three movies and the TV show were ones I can remember to date about how I can hold Dennis to a high regard for his talents. I am very sorry for everyone's loss of Dennis Farina. He was certainly one of the best and he will be truly missed.
July 22, 2013
I loved watching this handsome man in any part he played. He will be missed.
July 22, 2013

Mr. Farina was a GREAT ACTOR. In many cases his comedy roles were really the highlight of the movies he made. Our particular favorite was his role as a hit man in Big Trouble. He will be greatly missed.
July 22, 2013
Something tells me there will be lots of "Law and Order" up there with Jerry Orbach & Dennis Farina in charge.I loved both of them in that show, they both were real class acts that left us way too soon.
Hope it brings comfort to his family knowing that many others share this great loss.
With deepest sympathy from a fan,

On Law & Order I loved how he would be mad if blood or anything gross got on he expensive shoes or suits at the crime scene. He played his part well.

I was shocked and saddened to see one of my favorite cop actors has passed away, who use to be a real policeman, in Chicago. Dennis Farina was a natural, who was fast talking, kind of gruff, but who was a natural actor, even though he was a policeman, he lent reality and believability to his characters, and I loved his white hair and crinkly eyes. This man will be terribly missed, not only by me, but by all! A terrible loss!

Was privileged to meet Dennis Farina at a Chicago cocktail party three years ago. I mentioned being a fan of a 1980-ish stage production he did here; couldn't recall the title, but I mentioned, "You were in it with Gary Cole & it had a military theme." He came up with the title immediately: "A Class C Trial In Yokahama" -- which he acted in with the old Chicago Theater Project troupe. He couldn't have been nicer or more pleasant. Always found him talented and attractive, particularly his voice. Rest peacefully --
July 22, 2013

May I respectfully send my prayers and sympathy to the family of Mr. Dennis Farina although I knew him only through my television screen and movies through which I just loved him. Mr. Farina really knew the craft of acting and could seemingly play whatever role presented to him. His personaily jumped off the screen and made you laugh at him, cry with him or simply hate him-because that's how great an actor he was. I will miss Mr. Farna very much very much. Somehow I sense he was a kind and giving person--just by "feeling" the warmth from his heart when he played the role of a father, friend or spoke to very young people in his films and tv shows.
July 22, 2013
So sorry to hear this news. I send prayers to all of his family.
