Once a notorious criminal, he went to great lengths to make amends in life.

Hill had focused on mending relationships with estranged family members in recent years, and made "tremendous progress" before he passed on.

Famously portrayed by Ray Liotta in the 1990 film, Hill has two children.

Hill's exploits in the mob world were legendary, but he prided himself on reforming later on. He was a frequent guest on Howard Stern's show.
