Organized Crime Figure. Known as "Bottles" Capone, he was the older brother of Al Capone, the infamous Chicago racketeer. Linked to the activities of his younger brother, he never became a top Chicago mobster or racketeer. Once he was imprisoned for income tax evasion, he was said to have been involved in the national syndicate's gambling and vice rackets, but it was never proven. He was given the nickname "Bottles" because he operated a legitimate business distributing bottled water in Chicago. Until his death, Ralph Capone was considered a minor player in the underworld. Cremated at Park Hill and ashes sent on to a funeral home.
