Born in Hartford, CT on November 4, 1938, he was the son of the late Antonino and Salvatrice “Tina” (Pappalardo) Russo. Tony grew up in Connecticut and graduated Bulkeley High School Class of ’56 then joined the U.S. Air Force and was always a proud veteran. After serving his country, he worked many years as a sales representative for Arrow Electronics and moved to Texas with his wife.

He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
