New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff Monday in memory of â€œSopranosâ€ star and New Jersey native James Gandolfini.
Gandolfini died Wednesday in Rome at age 51. A family spokesman says he suffered a heart attack.
The governorâ€™s order says Gandolfini was an iconic actor who â€œleft a timeless impact upon television and film in the state of New Jersey and across our nation.â€
Gandolfini was born in Westwood, N.J., grew up in Park Ridge and attended Rutgers, the stateâ€™s flagship public university.
The governor says the actor acclaimed for his role as mobster Tony Soprano was also an advocate, in two documentaries, for U.S. servicemen and women and veterans.
