MONTREAL

— Mourners flocked to an east-end Montreal funeral home Saturday night for the visitation for murdered Montreal  mafia don Nicolo Rizzuto.

Rizzuto, 86, was gunned down in his home in Cartierville Wednesday in front of his wife and daughter.

Often referred to as “the last godfather,” Rizzuto funeral will be held Monday at Notre-Dame-de-la-Defense Church in Little Italy.

Visitation began at 7 p.m. the Complexe Funeraire Loreto in St. Leonard, the same location as his grandson Nick Rizzuto Jr 

Nick Rizzuto Jr’s visitation was held after his murder in December. He was also the target of a hit.

The funeral home is owned by friends of the Rizzuto family.

Hundreds, perhaps even thousands, are expected to attend the don’s funeral.
