Michael Anthony Russo - Rochester Cremation

Rochester, NY on April 8, 2023.  “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1

Michael is predeceased by his mother, Yolanda Russo, father, Michael “Trucker” Raftey, fraternal grandfather, Michael Raftery and maternal grandfather, James Russo. Michael is survived by his children, Giovanni and Eloise (Emily Baird), brother, Nicholas; fraternal grandparents, Maryellen (Wayne) King, maternal grandmother, Linda Ingrassia; and stepmom, Cathy Raftery. He also leaves behind the following aunts and uncles; Abbirose Stanley, Linda (Josh) Gagner, Stefani Russo, James (Maigan) Russo, Harley Raftery, Jacob King; special cousin, Joey Russo along with many other beloved extended family members and friends.

Michael was known as a fun loving person with a kind heart. He is deeply loved by his entire family and more so by his 2 infant children and their mother. It goes beyond saying that we will sorely miss him.

    Hi, my name is John Battista. I was a dear friend of Michaels to those who know. I’m at a loss for words currently and I’m very sorry for this tragedy. I wish to help in any way possible and I encourage Emily (the mother of Mikes children) to reach out to me when and if she’d like. Thank you.

    Mikey may you now be resting in Heavenly Peace with your Mom & PaPa & other family members. You will be deeply missed by so many & forever loved until joined with you again in Heaven by everyone. Until then your memories will stay alive & live forth throughout your young. Rest easy now, all you felt here on earth is gone & all joy & unconditional love is what you are now surrounded with.
