March 16, 1965 — September 19, 2023

Robinson Twp.

Ron Russitano Jr., 58, of Pittsburgh, PA, passed away on Tuesday, September 19, 2023.

He was born in Pittsburgh on March 16, 1965 to Ron & Carol Russitano, a superhero from day one. He was deeply enthusiastic about his life’s many passions.  Owner of Phantom of the Attic since 1986, Athletic Commissioner, builder of communities, and a true Pittsburgh Legend.  Ron was a generous, warm, safe, loving, kind-hearted person to everyone he met – and a hilarious prankster.  He never lost his excitement for the little things; he lived a full life.

Ron is survived by his children, Layla, Karly, and Vito; his grandchildren, Olivia, Ameliana, Sofia, and Zephyr; his parents, Ron and Carol; his sisters, Kim and Kristen; his nephews, Ryan, Sean, Brandon, Nolan, and Stefan; honorary brother, Jay; and all his friends, customers, and the other deeply meaningful relationships he’s built throughout his years.
