Matt Rousso – New Orleans Chapter
The Affiliates of New Orleans mourned the death of one of our very well liked and respected New members in early October. Though he, along with his wife Angela, was an Affiliate for only three short years, he always chided Matt for not inviting him to join the Maryknoll Affiliates earlier.
Besides being a good Affiliate, Russ was very active in many civic and church affairs. One of his friends described the Russ we knew: “He modeled what it was to be a Christian without pretension. He loved life; he loved people; he loved his family. ‘Professor Past,’ his clown name, was generous with his time and loved not only to entertain but to visit with those in the nursing homes. Sometimes faced with difficult choices, love was always the deciding factor.”
We all miss him!
