Il Papa, AKA Eugene Henry Gosfield was born to Rudolph the furrier and Elizabeth the nurse in Chicago in 1924. He fought in WW2, fathered four kids and ran a restaurant.
He's never lost his eccentric
appreciation of the world (which sometimes borders on a sort of mad romanticism.) As a smarter man than me once said, Absolution will be yours when you accept the faults of your father as your own.
