69 years is not bad for that kind of lifestyle. At least he outlived most of his gangster buddies.

Same here. I don't know why and how these criminals get hyped up and become someone people admire like they are idols. He was a criminal who snitched on others and he managed to live a lot longer than expected. The End.
