I am so saddened by the news of Russ’ passing. Our deepest condolences to the Cirillo families and to all who knew him. I didn’t know him as an adult, but I clearly remember him as that adorable little boy who tagged along with me and his sister, Connie, everywhere we went.
May you rest forever in peace, Russ.
Anna and George Deuchar

To my dear brother. I have missed you for years but remember good times at Ocean Beach and taking you for long walks in the carriage when you were little. All the good times playing ball at our house with your cousins when we lived in Bricktown. . Those days I know we all would love to have back, being together again. We will, some day, all be together again. We love you and you are sorely missed. Love, your sister Barb
