Actor Rick Aiello – son of the late legendary actor, Danny Aiello – died of pancreatic cancer … his family tells TMZ.
According to Rick’s mother, Sandy … he died Monday night surrounded by loved ones at a hospital in Warwick, New Jersey. We are told that he had been battling the disease for about a year and a half.
Sorry, Rick’s brother, Danny Aiello III, also died of pancreatic cancer in 2010. Their father died in December 2019 from an infection related to a sudden illness he was treated for … as we first reported.
Rick followed in his father’s footsteps as a veteran actor with more than 60 credits to his name, beginning in the mid-80s. He is best known for appearing in the same film that received his father’s critique and an Oscar nomination – Spike Lee‘s 1989 film, “Doing the Right Thing.”
Rick played Officer Long … just like he did in Spike’s “Jungle Fever” a few years later.
He also had notable roles in “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” and guest starred on shows such as ‘Law & Order’ and ‘Sex and the City’.
Ricky is left by his wife, Arlene Anne Urichichand their 2 children.
He was 65.
