San Francisco Chronicle - Late Edition (Sunday) - - LIFE TRIBUTES -


In the early 60’s, Rus­sel opened his very suc­cess­ful busi­ness, DeSalvo Travel, trav­el­ing all over the world. Through­out his 40-year ca­reer, he re­ceived nu­mer­ous awards rec­og­niz­ing him as a pil­lar in the in­dus­try and ‘one of a kind’ to clients and col­leagues.

In­spired by faith and ser­vice, Rus­sel be­came a found­ing mem­ber of Martin de Por­res in 1971 and con­tin­ued to vol­un­teer to feed the poor for over 40 years. He is re­mem­bered by his laugh­ter and fun-lov­ing na­ture, com­mu­ni­cat­ing this en­thu­si­asm and joy with all he met.

He is sur­vived by his three chil­dren, Stephanie, Al­li­son, and Jef­frey, grand­son Michael, son-in-law Carl, and many beloved nieces and neph­ews on both coasts. A Memo­rial Mass will be held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 10th at 12:00 noon at St. Do­minic’s Catholic Church, 2390 Bush St., San Fran­cisco, 94115. In lieu of flow­ers please do­nate to Martin de Por­res House of Hos­pi­tal­ity, 225 Potrero Street, San Fran­cisco, 94103. Visit www. mar­tin­de­por­
