Bonventre later served as underboss to New York mob boss Salvatore Maranzano during the Castellammarese War. During the early months of the war, Bonventre became a target as the Brooklyn-based Castellammarese began to threaten Joe "the Boss" Masseria's domination over Italian organized crime. On July 15, 1930, Bonventre was gunned down by Masseria gunmen outside his garage.
