Goodfella`s - Is Jimmy Conway still in prison/alive

Jimmy Conway is currently serving a 20-years-to life sentence for murder in a New York State prison. He will not be eligible for parole until 2004 when he will be 78 years old. [Conway's character was based upon real-life mobster Jimmy Burke, who died in 1996 in prison of lung cancer.]

Just wondering if this guy is still alive or whats the craic.

"was serving his time in Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, New York State when he developed lung cancer. He died from this disease on April 13, 1996, aged sixty-four. Had he lived he would have been eligible for parole in 2004."

He seems to be asking if the fictional character is still alive.

64 + 8 = 78?

How does that work?

Bit of a stupid question but I'm stupid enough to reply.

Goodfellas was on on Saturday and I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't thinking the same thing. But lets face it, Hill is the only one alive today. Jimmy would die in prison (Of Lung Cancer)!
