Private Viewing Held For Sopranos Star James Gandolfini In NJ Near Where He Grew Up

A private viewing for James Gandolfini is underway in a small New Jersey town near where he grew up.

Mourners at Wednesday’s invitation-only wake for family and friends have left flowers at the Robert Spearing Funeral Home in Park Ridge.

The 51-year-old star of “The Sopranos” grew up in nearby Westwood. He died last week in Italy.

Nurse Robin Caprio wasn’t allowed in to the private viewing and stood outside with a photo of herself and Gandolfini taken when his show filmed a scene in Paterson.

Broadway theaters said they’d dim their marquee lights in memory of Gandolfini, who earned a Tony Award nomination in 2009 for his role in “God of Carnage.”
