Shortly after his death, Ray’s fiancé Jacy Nittolo paid tribute on Instagram, writing: “My life these past couple of years have been nothing but truly magical.”

She adds: “Ray and I share a deep love that I will cherish in my heart forever. We laughed daily and we were inseparable. The chemistry was wild in the best way. He was everything in the world to me and we couldn’t get enough of each other. The kind of love that one dreams of.”

“He was the most beautiful person inside and out that I’ve ever known… and even that is an understatement.”

The esteemed actor is also known for roles in Cop Land, Marriage Story and The Sopranos film prequel The Many Saints Of Newark.

Liotta is known to have completed two unreleased projects prior to his death. One of which is the Apple TV+ series Black Bird, set to be released July 8th, where Liotta stars alongside Taron Egerton, Paul Walter Hauser and Greg Kinnear. A trailer for the miniseries can be streamed below.
