Louis “Yea Lou” Russo, 71, of Goodyear, AZ, gained his angel wings on January 15, 2021 at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center. His final hour was spent with his family virtually at his bedside.
Yea Lou was born July 29, 1949, in Providence, Rhode Island to Victor and Theresa (Russo) Lozeau, who both have preceded him in death, in 2010 and 1998, respectively, and his baby brother, Micheal Lozeau in 2011.
He was an avid sports fan and loved the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox and the Boston Celtics. If you had nothing to say to Lou, just mention any sport and there would be a conversation to last for hours on end. He enjoyed time with his family, taking walks and loved celebrating birthdays, especially singing and eating birthday cake, and, playing the lottery was a must daily.
His last 7 years were his best years in the Valley of the Sun. Thanks to the Avondale Senior Center family and loved ones in Arizona, Lou explored the valley, high and low and was always ready to have pizza and beer.
He is survived by his loving sisters, Denise (Brian) Whetstone of Goodyear, AZ, Terry Winfield of Winchester, VA, brothers Richard (Melissa) Lozeau of Winchester, VA and William (Jen) Lozeau of West Palm Beach, FL, John (Debbie) O'Brien of Winchester, VA and a host of nieces and nephews who loved him so much. He is also survived by a loving companion.
