"He was a great father and an fantastic husband", Adonis' wife said in a statement. He helped all his friends he could.

The actor, best known for his role as Anthony Stabile in the 1990 Martin Scorsese film, died Wednesday night in Las Vegas, according to TMZ. He had been on dialysis and a ventilator for the past week, and the family waited until Christmas had passed to remove him from the ventilator.

She adds: "He will be missed".

Frank's friend Phil Castellano shared a further message on Facebook on behalf of the actor's wife. Rest in peace, Frank Adonis. He also appeared in "Raging Bull", "Casino" and many other films.

By the end of his life, Adonis had amassed 40 film credits with a penchant for playing gangsters, including appearances in films like "Find Me Guilty", "Mafioso: The Father, The Son", "Mob Queen", and on episodes of "Law & Order", "The Equalizer" and "The Sopranos".

His most recent credit was in last year's feature Proximity to Power.

Adonis is survived by his wife Denise and three children.

Adonis eventually split off into directing, making his directorial debut with the 1998 One Deadly Road star Robert D'Aleo and Aesha Waks.
