‘Goodfellas’ Inspiration Henry Hill Has Died
Former mobster Henry Hill…who became an FBI informant against the Lucchese crime family and then had his life made into the movie ‘Goodfellas’…died yesterday at the age of 69.
Ray Liotta played Henry in “Goodfellas”, which came out in 1990.
His girlfriend says, quote, “He had been sick for a long time. His heart gave out.”
Hill entered the witness protection program in 1980, but was expelled in 1987 due to several drug arrests. Over the years he was a frequent guest on “The Howard Stern Show”.
There are numerous clips of his appearances on YouTube.
