Russell Ruben Zuniga found peace on the morning of April 30, 2012 surrounded by his loving family and friends as he succumbed to injuries from brain trauma. He was born on December 12, 1988 in Long Beach, CA. He spent his childhood in San Pedro, then moved to Long Beach and attended Wilson High School. After graduating in 2007, he returned to San Pedro to be closer to friends and family. A punk and hardcore music fan, he played guitar and worked toward forming a successful band. Russell then met his soulmate, Kylie Carswell and she meant the world to him. They enjoyed concerts together and attended Kings and Dodgers games, his favorite sports teams. Russell was employed at C.A.R.E. Alternative Meds in Long Beach, where he enjoyed working for the past year. Russell is survived by his father, Victor Zuniga, Jr. of Long Beach; grandparents, Martha and Victor Zuniga, Sr. of San Pedro and brother, George Niklas Zuniga. He is also survived by his mother and stepfather, Teal and Tommy Kucura of San Pedro; grandmother, Tamara Archibald of Grants Pass, OR; his sisters Teanna Gutierrez, Sherry Bandy; and brother, Tommy Kucura, Jr. He will be missed by his many aunts, uncles and cousins.
