The Journal de Montreal is carrying a report this morning which claims that reputed mob boss Vito Rizzuto, decided to put off chemotherapy for his lung cancer, because he wanted to spend the holidays at home with his family.
Rizutto died in hospital Monday, apparently from complications related to pneumonia.
Funeral arrangements have been finalized.
Visitation will take place at the Loreto Funeral home in Saint-Léonard this Sunday between 2pm and 5pm and 7pm and 10pm.
The funeral service will be held Monday afternoon at Notre-Dame-de-la-Défense Chuch in Little Italy.
