Teresa Giudice's dad, Giacinto Gorga, passed away on April 3, his daughter confirmed on Instagram. The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member shared the sad news on Instagram about her dad, who was also known as Nonno (meaning "grandfather" in Italian).
Soon after she shared the news, the Gorga patriarch was remembered by those closest to him, including his son, Joe Gorga, sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, and his granddaughter, Teresa's daughter, Milania Giudice.
"Rest easy my angel," Milania wrote on Friday (April 3). "I love you endlessly. Thank you for all the laughs and countless memories. You will forever be missed. You brighten every room you walked into. Thank you for being my best friend. I love you nonno."
Giacinto's other grandchildren included Teresa's other three daughters with Joe Giudice, Gia, Audriana, and Gabriella; as well as Melissa and Joe's three children, Antonia, Joey, and Gino.
