Liotta had an impressive acting career, which lasted over four decades.

The Emmy Award-winning actor was also set to produce the History Channel's upcoming mafia docuseries, "Five Families." Liotta leaves behind a daughter, Karsen Liotta, and a fiancee, Jacy Nittolo. The "Shades of Blue" star got engaged to Nittolo in December 2020, and shared the news alongside a photo of the two on Instagram. And while there are few details about Liotta's passing at this time, Nittolo was reportedly with the actor during his trip.
