Ray’s Sketch of Life
Liotta was one of Hollywood’s hardest working stars. While known for several roles, his most memorable role was starring in “Goodfellas” alongside Robert De Niro & Joe Pesci as mobster Henry Hill. Another unforgettable performance was in the iconic film “Field of Dreams” and his portrayal of Shoeless Joe Jackson.
Liotta had countless films under his belt including “Cop Land”, “Corrina Corinna” and “Blow” where he played alongside Johnny Depp as Fred Jung, the father to Depp’s character George Jung. It was this role that was a personal favorite of mine. The heart-wrenching scene produced one of the film’s most memorable quotes.
Ray was a devoted father and husband. He most recently celebrated his engagement to Jacy Nittolo via social media. Liotta leaves her and his daughter Karsen Liotta, who is also following in her father’s footsteps to mourn his loss.
Straight Official Magazine offers our prayers and condolences to the Liotta family as well as his peers and his fans.
