Apparantly Galante never really was the boss of the Bonanno Crime Family, nobody told him this though. Galante was a powerful and feared mobster. He imported Sicilian mobsters to protect him. But the plan failed. He was betrayed by his Sicilian friends and shot to death on July 12, 1979 while enjoying a lunch at Joe and Mary Italian-American Restaurant. His two Sicilian bodyguards left the scene alive and well.
