Ray Patriarca - A dynasty, conspiracy theories, a rise to the top, and a fall every man prays for
Born on St. Patrick’s Day 1908 to Italian immigrants in Worcester, Massachusetts, Raymond Loreto Salvatore Patriarca Sr., rose from his early days as a car-stealing, truck-hijacking, armed robber to become one of the most powerful mob bosses in the United States History. At the age of three, he moved with his family to Providence, Rhode Island, where his father operated a liquor store. When his dad died in 1925, the troubled teen quickly turned to a life of crime. By the late 1920s, he was hijacking trucks filled with booze and making money off prostitution. His arrest record when he reached the age of thirty included breaking and entering, bootlegging, safe cracking and white slavery. He also orchestrated a jailbreak that led to the death of a prison guard and trustee. Smart and savvy, Patriarca gained a reputation for fairness that would later serve him well when he was asked to mediate disputes among warring Mafia factions. He could also be ruthless, a crime godfather who barked orders at underlings and made snap decisions on the life or death of some errant mob foot soldiers. He’s just the toughest guy you ever saw, one Massachusetts State Police Detective reportedly said.
