“Goodfellas” actor Chuck Low, who played Morris “Morrie” Kesseler alongside Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta, passed away at age 89 in a New Jersey nursing home on Sept. 18.

Low was featured in the 1990 Martin Scorsese film, in which his character was eventually killed off when Pesci’s character plunged a screwdriver in the back of his head. He went on to star in projects like “The Mission,” “Once Upon a Time in America” and “The Sopranos,” among others.
