NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Funeral services for Sopranos star James Gandolfini are expected to be held in Manhattan later this week.

The services for Gandolfini, 51, are expected to be held at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Upper Manhattan.

The Sopranos star died Wednesday while on vacation in Italy. Dr. Claudio Modini, head of the emergency room at the Policlinic Umberto I hospital, said Gandolfini arrived at the hospital at 10:40 p.m. and was pronounced dead at 11 p.m. after resuscitation efforts in the ambulance and hospital failed.

Tributes to Gandolfini popped up all over his home state of New Jersey in the days following his death.

The owner of Holsten’s placed a “Reserved” sign on the table where Tony Soprano sat with his family during the much-debated and unforgettable finale. Flowers and Thursday’s copy of the Newark Star-Ledger were also placed on the table.
