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.
