Former Mob Wives star Renee Graziano revealed on Saturday, May 25, that her father Anthony died. He was 78 years old.

Renee, 49, shared a touching tribute to her late father on Instagram alongside a photo of them together.

“I CANT BELIEVE YOUR GONE, LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU, MY HERO, MY PROTECTOR, MY ROCK, MY DAD AND THE BEST MAN IN THE WORLD THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME THE WAY I AM AND FOR HELPING GUIDE MY SON WE SURE ARE GONNA MISS YOU .. REST IN PEACE DADDY.”

Fellow reality stars, like Teresa Giudice and Erika Jayne, left their condolences in the comments section of her post.

Anthony was a New York City mobster and former consigliere in the Bonanno crime family.

His daughter Renee rose to fame when she became a participant on Mob Wives beginning in 2011. She, along with Drita D’Avanzo, were the only two cast members that appeared on all six seasons of the show.

Anthony was reportedly not thrilled with Renee’s appearance on Mob Wives when the show premiered. His lawyer, Patrick Parrotta, denied those rumors in 2012.
