Joseph N. Gallo

Joseph N. Gallo (January 8, 1912 – September 1, 1995) was a New York mobster who allegedly became consigliere of the Gambino crime family during the reigns of Carlo Gambino, Paul Castellano and for a short time, John Gotti. Joseph N. Gallo should not be confused with "Crazy Joey" Gallo from the Colombo crime family. He is the father of Gambino crime family associate Joseph C. Gallo.

After Gotti took control of the Family, he removed Gallo as Consigliere and replaced him with Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, who later became the Underboss of the Family and a government informant. Gallo died of natural causes in Astoria, Queens. Gallo's chauffeur and bodyguard was Frank DiStefano.
