Henry Hill passed away Tuesday at the age of 69, ABC News reports.
The former mobster, whose life was immortalized in the movie Goodfellas, died in a L.A. hospital after a long battle with an undisclosed illness, Nate Caserta, the son of Hill's fiancée Lisa Schinelli Casterta, confirmed.
"I will never be the same. I lose someone I cared about a lot. Someone who loved my family and helped me a lot with life," Caserta wrote in a Facebook post. "You truly lived a life no one could live. You touched so many people's lives. Your spirit lives forever with me."
