Ortiz was born in 1913 in La Habana, Cuba, to Miguel Ortiz, a Spanish-American War veteran, and Luisa Fernandez, a farmer. Ortiz was born in the slums, and his father and mother died when he was young. He became involved with the Almeida crime family in 1953 when it was founded, after being involved in the Habana Syndicate, a Cuban crime family run by Raul Saavedra. The Habana Syndicate was rich, and he inherited all of the money after Saavedra was murdered. He became an enforcer, running Corazon de Oro for the mob. In 1960, Dominic's Trapani crime family began taking over Cuba, and they assassinated Ortiz when they took over the racket. Dominic, using a Modified AK-47, filled him with bullets. His dead body was put in a car, driven to Battaglia Cement Factory by soldier Albert Credi, and his body was thrown into a vat of cement, and it was only found in 1978 by Cuban police.
