Retired Philly FBI agent Gino L. Lazzari, who worked organized crime cases, and was beloved by colleagues and mobsters alike, died on Saturday at age 85 in a suburb of Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.

Lazzari, who was an FBI agent for 25 years, went on after he retired to become  an investigator for the Pennslyvania Crime Commission, the paper reported. He worked a variety of FBI offices and arrived in Philly in the 1960s.

“Anybody who worked in organized crime, knew and loved Gino,” Andrew Sloan, a retired FBI agent who worked with Gino in organized crime told the Daily News. “Nobody was more liked than Gino.”

“He was a terrific human being. Even the mob guys liked him.”

The paper reported that he was a man of detail. He knew “the pedigrees of every mob figure, who their parents were, who their children were, and what their connections were among themselves in the criminal organization” the paper reported.

“In the days before computers, we used to refer to him as our computer,” said Jack Howell, a former supervisor on the organized crime squad told the paper. “We would be chasing Bruno or some mob figure and Gino would remember all the license numbers. He knew how to tie people together in the mob.”
