James N. Russo

Obituary Condolences

James Nicholas Russo, age 90, of Seaford, Del., died Dec. 29, 2012. Jim was an engineer by degree, graduating from Northeastern University in 1944 after serving as vice-president of both his junior and senior classes, but his vocation was technical sales at which he excelled. His genuine interest in all people and ability to engage anyone in meaningful conversation are traits that all who knew him will recognize and remember. His sense of humor, story-telling (especially about his antics as a youngster), and resonating laugh will also be long remembered as will his unconditional love and support of all his family. The center of Jims life was providing for and spending good times with his family. Vacation trips, boating, and extended family celebrations are all fond memories held by his children. In retirement, Jim and Joey Ann traveled to live near their grandchildren, helping to raise all of them, and until recently were doing the same with their great-grandchildren with whom they had a special bond. Over the years they lived in Braintree, Mass., Detroit, Mich., Rhode Island, Florida, Texas, and Delaware. He was the son of the late James Don Russo and Cecelia F. McPhee Russo. He was also preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Joey Ann Alexander Russo in Dec. 2012, and a sister, Veronica Pike. Jim is survived by two sons, James Alan Russo and his wife Susan of Waldoboro, Maine, Barry Nicholas Russo and his wife Susan of Morrisville, Vt.; and a daughter, Cindi Ann Smith and her husband Dennis of Seaford, Del.; grandchildren, James Murray Russo of Brooklyn, N.Y., Michelle Elizabeth Stead of Parkton, Md., James Alexander Smith of Seaford, Del., Sarah Elizabeth Smith of Seaford, Del.; great-grandchildren, James Murray Russo of Brooklyn, N.Y., Michelle Elizabeth Stead of Parkton, Md., James Alexander Smith of Seaford, Del., Sarah Elizabeth Smith of Seaford, Del.; and a sister, Mary Kelleher of Norwood, Mass. In lieu of flowers, Jims family would like you to spend some extra time with your family and make a donation in his memory to the .
