Frank Adonis, a veteran actor best known for his roles in a number of Martin Scorsese films, has died at the age of 83 years old.

An official cause of death for Adonis wasn’t immediately revealed, however, TMZ reports that the actor died Wednesday night (Dec. 26) in Las Vegas after a “long battle of various health issues.”

Adonis’ wife Denise told the gossip site he had been sick with kidney problems for the past couple of years. She said he had been on dialysis and was on a ventilator in the days leading up to his passing, but the family waited until after Christmas to take him off life support.

“He will be missed. He was a great father and an amazing husband. He helped all his friends he could. Great writer, director and actor. He was my best friend,” Denise Adonis said.
