Craig S. Russo , 50, of Rt. 28 Shokan died unexpectedly Sunday December 12, 2021 at the Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital in Poughkeepsie. He was born Aug. 28, 1971 in Bay Shore, son of Angelo and Gail Costanzo Russo. He resided in Shokan for the past 45 years. He was a graduate of Saugerties High School, and had been employed by the Ulster County DPW Bridge Division. He loved telling puns, and not-so-funny jokes to all that he encountered. Craig was an avid HAMM radio user, loved counting coins, and was always lucky with the scratch-off tickets. He was a life member of the Olive Fire Dept.
Surviving are his father Angelo Russo, sisters: Kimberly-Anne (Dennis) Fisher and Amanda (Chris) Winne, nieces & nephews: Lorin Winne (Gabrielle Rocha de Assis), Jared Fisher, Kathryn Fisher, Courtney Winne (Brad Boyd), and Joshua Winne, his four-legged companion Spice, and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Craig's Mother Gail Russo joined him, just hours after his passing.
