R.I.P. - Colombo Family Underboss John "Sonny" Franzese has passed away at age 103.
Legendary New York mobster John “Sonny” Franzese, the former underboss of the Colombo crime family, has died at 103, according to TMZ.

As a younger man, according to Mafia lore, Franzese was a big spender and a regular at New York’s Copacabana nightclub, where he hobnobbed with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.

He also provided financing for the classic 1972 porn film “Deep Throat.”

Franzese died of natural causes at a nursing home in New York, Fox News confirmed.

He was 100 when he was released from the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass., after being sentenced to eight years in prison in 2011 at age 93.

103 seems a popular age to die at this year. Who’s next?

New York’s Last Bigtime Mafia Boss, Gets Sendoff From His ‘Spark Plug’

"No cops or FBI agents were waiting outside with cameras.

No flower cars accompanied the hearse and the three black limousines that pulled up to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.

And unless you knew otherwise, you would not have imagined that the bronze coffin borne up the steps contained the mortal remains of New York’s last bigtime Mafia boss.

The first hint to someone not in the know only came when the priest, Monsignor David Cassato, offered a joke.

“There’s an expression, there’s two things in life you’re sure of, right?” Cassato said. “Death and…

“Taxes,” a number of the roughly 75 mourners joined him in saying.

“If you’re smart, Sonny told me, you can avoid some of those taxes,” Cassato said, drawing laughter even from those who appeared to be feeling the loss most keenly."
