|Portrayed By||Burt Young|
Robert "Bobby" Baccalieri, Sr. (played by Burt Young) is the father of Bobby "Bacala" Baccalieri. Soldier in Junior Soprano's crew in his younger days, he owned and worked part-time in a barber shop cutting hair, the shop was a front for his illegal businesses, he sold it after he retired from the family. In "Soprano Home Movies", Tony mentioned to Bobby's son how it was unusual that he never whacked anyone, considering his father was "the fuckin Terminator in that respect", suggesting Bobby, Sr. was responsible for numerous homicides before his retirement.
Returned to New Jersey from semi-retirement in 2000. Suffered from lung cancer after a lifelong smoking habit. In "Another Toothpick", Tony Soprano gave him the task of killing Salvatore "Mustang Sally" Intile. The hit was ordered as retribution for the savage unprovoked beating of Bryan Spatafore, brother of Made man Vito Spatafore.
Vito was a made man in the Aprile crew at the time. Mustang Sally was Robert's godson but he felt he had always been a problem so he had no reservations about the job and was glad to be of use. Despite his poor health and shortness of breath on exertion, he was able to overwhelm and kill the much younger Mustang Sally and his friend Carlos. He died after choking on blood brought on from his lung cancer and losing control of his car and crashing into a sign post while leaving the scene of his final hit.
