“The Sopranos” cast mourned the life of their co-star Tony Sirico, who died on Friday at the age of 79.

Siciro, who played wise-guy Paulie Walnuts on the HBO smash hit, had reportedly been residing in a Fort Lauderdale, Florida assisted living home for the past several years due to declining health. 

The actor, who made a career playing mobsters in “Goodfellas,” “Mickey Blue Eyes,” and “Gotti,” was remembered by fellow “Sopranos” actors on social media. 

“I adore Tony Sirico,” wrote Lorraine Bracco, who described the actor as a “stand up guy” that always had her back and was loved by her children and parents.  

“I have a lifetime of memories with Tony— starting with Goodfellas to The Sopranos and way beyond— but my God, did we have fun doing the Bensonhurst Spelling Bee—I’m still laughing,” she continued. “I hope he’s in heaven cracking everybody up now. Love you, my Pal…rest in peace.”

Jamie Lynn Sigler, who played titular character Tony Soprano’s daughter, Meadow, said she was “so heartbroken” by the loss of such a “phenomenal actor.” 

“I loved you so much,” she detailed on Instagram. “I have never been able to walk into a room that you were in without you giving me an enormous hug, drenching me in your cologne, and making sure I knew any man that came near me would have to answer to you first.”

Michael Imperioli, who played Tony’s protege Christopher, mourned his “colleague and partner in crime” in an emotional social media post. 

“Tony was like no one else: he was as tough, as loyal and as big hearted as anyone I’ve ever known,” Imperioli gushed. “I was at his side through so much: through good times and bad. But mostly good. And we had a lot of laughs.” 

“We found a groove as Christopher and Paulie and I am proud to say I did a lot of my best and most fun work with my dear pal Tony. I will miss him forever. He is truly irreplaceable. I send love to his family, friends and his many many fans. He was beloved and will never be forgotten. Heartbroken today,” he concluded.
