Frank passed away from liver failure at the age of 66. His brother Phil recently plead guilty to loan sharking charges and is currently behind bars in federal prison. Both of the Narducci brothers were indicted back in 1987 and were convicted in 1989 on racketeering charges.

According to the feds Frank Narducci Jr. became a made member in the Philly mafia back in 1981. He accompanied his dad Chickie to the courthouse where he was on trial for racketeering back in 1982. After the proceedings had ended he drove his dad to his car at a nearby parking garage. Chickie was then gunned down shortly afterward getting out of his car in front of his home in Philadelphia after being part of an unsuccessful bid to take over the Cosa Nostra family.

Frank Narducci Jr. was released from prison in 2009 and has kept a very low profile ever since. His only other brush with the law beyond his 89 conviction was a 2015 parole violation. Even though his brother is currently in prison he maintains that he has left the mafia in Philadelphia and has gone legit. Phil along with his wife opened up a gastropub called Chick’s in South Philly named after their dad.

Alleged Philly mobsters Salvatore Sparacio and Vincent Pagano have also passed away over the past year.
