Though he was most known as a tough kid, you’d never forget his hug. No grass grew under his cleats, Russell was a boy in motion. Handing him the ball was most likely good for 6. His room full of trophies was testament to his skill in a singlet and head gear. Some of his more cerebral pursuits included playing the piano and trumpet; he brought home perfect grades. He once played the piano on stage at Rowan University with the Olde Town Music group.
Russell is the beloved son of April and Russell; greatest brother of Billy, June, and Joey; dear Grandson of Frank and Carol Mongiello, and Russell and Muriel Leone, and Great-grandson of Barbara Cameli and Mary Mongiello.
