Obituary for Ben Russo

Ben Russo

City of Grosse Pointe resident Benjamin Joseph Russo, 43, passed away Monday, Oct. 8, 2018.

He was the beloved only child of Mary and Joe Russo and also is survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Ben was predeceased by his grandparents, Sam and Marianne Russo and John and Margaret O’Hara and uncles, Sam Russo, John O’Hara and James O’Hara.

Ben was the senior marketing programs manager at Capsilon in San Francisco, but recently returned home to Grosse Pointe to be with family. He loved alternative music, playing bass guitar and disc jockeying for BFF.FM, San Francisco. He was a lover of great food and was passionate about his garden.

Ben was loved by those who knew him. He was the life of the party and loved spending time with his family and friends. His sense of humor was what drew people to him and his thoughtfulness was what kept them close.
