Ray died unexpectedly in his sleep in May 2022.

The Goodfellas star, who received a Golden Globe nomination for his acting in Something Wild, has now earned his spot on the historic Hollywood Boulevard landmark.

Ray’s 24-year-old daughter Karsen Liotta accepted the star on his behalf. Ray shared Karsen with his ex-wife, Michelle Grace.

“I’m so touched to be accepting this honor on behalf of my dad. I couldn’t be more proud of him,” Karsen said during the ceremony in Los Angeles.

In addition to his many movie successes, Karsen added that her father is remembered for his dedication to his family.

“He was a one of a kind actor and the best friend, brother and father anyone could have asked for,” she said.

“I lucked out with you.”

Karsen, who has began acting herself, recognized the impact her father had on her own life.

“If you have a Ray in your life, you’re lucky,” she said.

“I love you so much. Thank you for your work and the imprint you left on me and all of those who love you. Everyone deserves a Ray in their life.”

The young woman also paid her respects to her father in an Instagram post the week after he died.

“Those who knew him, loved him. You are the best dad anyone could ask for. I love you. Thank you for everything,” Karsen wrote.

Ray is also survived by his fiancée Jacy Nittolo, who was with him when he died.

Nittolo was emotional beside Karsen on Friday as her late love received the honor in Hollywood.

Nittolo also posted several tributes following his sudden death.

She wrote: “My life these past couple of years have been nothing but truly magical.”

Ray often expressed the love he had for his blended family, consisting of Nittolo’s four children and his daughter, Karsen.

The actor’s legacy will continue to live on in the stars, as well as on the screens.
