Words cannot express how I feel. He was one of the greatest people I had the pleasure and joy to call my dearest friend.  He was always so happy and helped everyone no matter what. He was a great man and will be missed.  I’m so devastated by this loss. I never saw it coming.  You will rest now and know you touched so many people. We love you Donny Russo.  I’m glad I got to tell you on Friday how wonderful you were. Betty boops will not be the same without u coming in with the jokes.
Love Teresa Soto and Efrain Soto

Condolences to the entire family.  Spent a lot of time on stage with this man back in the 60’s and one phrase come to mind, I laughed till I cried.  I was lucky enough to have these years as a friend of Donny’s, and he never forgot a friend. Set up the kit, play some songs and make them laugh in heaven, you will be missed.

As I look through the house you helped create…your touches, love, laughter and friendship surrounds us. You made us laugh, you gave us comfort…say hi to Gracie for us, I’m sure she was waiting for “her” Donny to arrive.  Miss you so much, love beyond words. You weren’t just a friend to us, you were a part of our family….I know we are blessed to have shared so many memories with you through the years. Rest in peace, and keep a watch over all of us. Keep telling those jokes (no one was better at it) ❤❤❤

Donny was a great friend and was always there when you needed him.  He helped me out on more than one occasion when I needed help with some carpentry projects. He always lifted your spirits when you were around him. He will be greatly missed by me and anyone who knew him. My condolences to Arlene, Rocco,  his mom and Monique. 

Sorry to say I will be out of town Friday and will not be able to attend his service.
