My 1st Cousin, Russell Carollo, a Pulitzer Award Winning Journalist, has died..

It is with great sorrow that I announce the passing of my Ist cousin, Russell Carollo. He lived an amazing life and has left a legacy of love, courage, brilliance, integrity, truth and journalistic excellence!

Russell Carollo was the son of Victor Carollo; a World War 2 veteran. Victor Carollo, was the brother of my mother, Rosalia Salena Carollo Fontana. I am so proud of my Americano Italiano family. 

The Carollo – Fontana family, will be having a “Celebration of Russell Carollo’s Life and Legacy” on Friday, Feb.15, 2019 @ 11AM in the Sacred Heart Church, 28088 Main St, Lacombe, LA 70445. 

Friends, colleagues, and peers of Russell Carollo & family are cordially invited. 

I have attached in the link below an article published in the Dayton Daily News sharing the wonderful life he led & his numerous journalistic contributions; that he has shared with the American people and the world for generations to come. 

May his soul Rest in Peace. – Possa la sua anima riposare in pace.
