SPRINGFIELD, Missouri (CNN) -- Convicted mobster John Gotti -- the ruthlessly brutal but stylishly dressed New York Mafia chief with silver slicked-back hair who reveled in the public spotlight as the "Dapper Don" -- died of cancer at a federal prison hospital Monday at age 61.

An FBI spokeswoman said the death occurred about 12 p.m. (1 p.m. ET) but had no other details.

Gotti was serving a life sentence after being convicted of murder and racketeering.

Gotti had been suffering from cancerous legions on his tongue, neck and ears. He had been imprisoned at the U.S. Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield since 2000 when he was transferred from a maximum security federal prison in Marion, Illinois.

Gotti was a classic gangster straight out of central casting, with a larger-than-life appeal that sprouted from a contradictory mix of violent outbursts and an uncanny ability to win the admiration of his Queens neighborhood, where he was known for organizing picnics and giving handouts.

The New York tabloids nicknamed him "Dapper Don," for his $1,800 tailor-made suits and the air of importance he exuded as he walked down 101st Avenue to the Bergin Hunt and Fish Social Club, headquarters for the Gambino crime family.

He also was called the "Teflon Don" because government charges in three trials failed to stick. Indeed, he seemed untouchable with his multimillion dollar illegal operation that thrived on prostitution, extortion, gambling, theft and drugs -- until his downfall in the early 1990s.
