On this day in 2001 we saw the passing of Jimmy Blue Eyes, who died at the grand age of 96. Vincent Alo as he was better known, was a key part of the Genovese Crime Family and aided mob associate Meyer Lansky in setting up casino operations in both Florida and Cuba. 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.
