Marco ‘The Mover’ D’Amico has died at the age of 84. Full details of his passing are unavailable at the time of writing, but, due to his age, it’s presumed to be natural causes.
He died on Wednesday night, April 22, 2020.
Even though D’Amico was an octogenarian, he retained his high-ranking position as consigliere in the Chicago Outfit until his death.
His criminal vocation began over 60 years ago, when he was arrested for gambling in 1958 and 1968 and also for being a backer in an illegal card game in 1976. He has had a couple of DUI arrests thrown in during the 80s. In the second DUI he was charged with aggravated battery for biting off the finger of a police officer during a stop in Illinois. Charges were eventually dropped.
On October 3, 1995, D’Amico was sentenced to 12 years and 3 months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to rob what he had been told was a high-stakes card game in 1989, running a sports bookmaking business and a big money poker game for several years, using extortion to collect gambling debts and loans, and extorting payoffs from former Chicago police officer Robert Cooley to enable Cooley to run a poker game in a Chicago social club without interference.
D’Amico was released from prison on July 21, 2005, and moved to Westchester, Illinois.
He was married to his wife, Patricia, for over 50 years, and they had four children
