GERARDO RUSSO August 28, 1943 - July 6, 2018 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Gerardo Russo on July 6, 2018 at the age of 74 years. Gerardo leaves to mourn his wife of 49 years, Antonietta, and his children, Joe Russo (Linda) and Maria DiVincenzo (Marco). He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Noah Russo, Lia and Cara DiVincenzo. He is survived by his brother Frank Russo (Donna), sisters, Maria D'Achille (Franco) and Rosa Rakic (George), sister-in-law Marianna Perillo of Italy, nieces and nephew from Winnipeg and Italy and many relatives and friends. Gerardo was predeceased by his parents, Giuseppe and Vincenza, his parents-in-law, Nicola and Felicia Troiano of Italy and his brother-in-law Vito Perillo of Italy. Gerardo was born on August 28, 1943 in Muro Lucano, Potenza, Italy and immigrated to Canada in December, 1960. Upon arriving to Winnipeg he worked with Manitoba Cabinet as a wood worker building furniture cabinets and frames. He stayed with the company for 24 years. He later joined the housekeeping department at the Grace General Hospital and remained there until his retirement in 2005. Dad was a traditional man with a heart of gold. He valued his family and friendships. He will be missed by all who knew him. We would like to extend their sincere thanks to Dr. Harris and the staff at Grace Hospital CancerCare for their care and support during this difficult time.

  • Sending sincere condolences to the entire Russo family. Gerry and I worked at my father's cabinet factory for more than two decades. During all those years Gerry was a loyal, well respected and well liked employee, who also became a friend to my family to this day. He often spoke very lovingly about his dear wife and children. I will always remember Gerry for his kind words to my father on his 100th birthday. He thanked my father for giving him the first opportunity to succeed as a Canadian. Gerry was a man of gratitude and that's a special quality in any man. May he rest in peace. Love from Henry and Connie Schritt - Posted by: Connie and Henry Schritt (Friends) on: Jul 11, 2018
