Today we have received the news that Henry Hill has passed away. Former mob member Hill found notoriety after life story was turned into the classic Scorcese movie GOODFELLAS, in which he was played by Ray Liotta.The film was adapted from the book of Hill’s story, ‘Wiseguys’.
Back in the day Hill may not have been the nicest man in the world, but he gained some fame later in life, and became an informant after entering (and subsequently expelled from following several misdemeanours) witness protection. His testimony led to the incarcerations of numerous big-nae mobsters.
He leaves two children and an ex-wife and passes following a recent heart attack.
