Grim Reaper whacks wiseguy with the Gambino mob

By John Marzulli..

A GANGSTER who was a member of the late Gambino boss John Gotti’s inner circle has gone to that big social club in the sky.

Longtime capo George (Big George) DeCicco died late last week of natural causes. He was 85.

DeCicco was one of the Dapper Don’s most trusted lieutenants, according to law enforcement sources, and was the leader of the Gambino crime family’s murderous Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, crew for many years.

DeCicco was a fearsome presence on Bath Ave. for decades, but he may have been best known as the uncle of Gambino underboss Frank DeCicco, who was blown up by a car bomb in 1986 in retaliation for participating in the infamous murder of Gambino boss Paul Castellano outside Sparks steakhouse in Midtown.
