On this day in 1904 Vincent Alo was born, he was a key member of the Genovese Crime Family as well as being an associate to Meyer Lansky and a major influence in helping him to set up casino operations in both Florida and Cuba.

Alo was described as being charming, intelligent and well liked by his associates.

He started work on Wall Street at age 14, and by the time he was 22 he was a made man.

He died of natural causes at the grand age of 96 after retiring from the family when he was in his 70’s! An underrated mobster?
