Slowly but surely the mobsters of the old days are passing away around the country. Sometimes their children have stepped in, but often times the kids like John Gotti Jr. haven’t been nearly as smart and have lived off the reputation of their street- smart dads.

BOSTON — Former New England Mafia capo regime Donato “Danny” Angiulo, who was part of a powerful mob family that ruled Boston’s underworld from the 1960s through the mid-1980s, died Sunday night at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center after a long illness. He was 86.

His brother, Gennaro “Jerry” Angiulo, was the underboss of the Patriarca crime family until an FBI bug planted in his North End headquarters in 1981 captured conversations about homicide, extortion, and loansharking, which led to Boston’s first sensational Mafia trial and the end of the Angiulos’ reign.

In 1986, a federal jury convicted Donato Angiulo and his brothers, Gennaro and Francesco, who was the mob’s accountant, of racketeering, and a third brother, Michele, of illegal gambling.

An Angiulo associate was caught on FBI tapes boasting that South Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger and his sidekick, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi, were friends of the Mafia and would kill for them. More than a decade later it was disclosed that Bulger and Flemmi were longtime FBI informants who had provided information about the interior of Angiulo’s headquarters that assisted agents in planting the bug.
