such a shock for his family
and also his friends and fans
he was taken far too soon
.
he was a remarkably charismatic actor who long ago surpassed comaparisons to his famous father and stood on his own as a talented actor with a great future

was jus*****ching one of the incredible Masterpiece presentations of the show "Zen" last night on PBS where he played the brother of the lead character
really apprecaited his work and will miss him

in my above post I see that the TMZ censor won't let you use the word "just" beside the word "watching"
how stupid!!

Francesco was one of my best friends , his loss is tragic .
He was a cornerstone of our company Happy Trailers HD.
WE were just recovering from the loss of our other partner Andrew Koenig ,when this happened. Francesco leaves 3 children 2 from his first marriage and the other is the daughter of his wife Valentina . He was very much loved by many and he will be missed by all who knew him . RIP my Brother .

Wow! Here his father has his last two children at 78 and 81, passing away at 86, and one of his sons passes away early in life at 48. It's hard to comprehend, but it's life.

The Glades have been running reruns of the new season all day today...I just finished watching the one with Francesco and then went to the computer to see that he had died...so shocking and so sad. I feel really bad for his son as well, to see this happening to his father, on what was time together, son and father time...my condolences to the family, and friends
