Bob was born June 29, 1950 in Cambridge, Massachusetts to Edward and Lena Dello Russo. He attended East Boston High School before enlisting in the Air Force for 4 years in 1969. He married the love of his life, Diane DelMastro on June 23, 1973 and they had their two daughters.

The family moved to Florida in 1978 and Bob started work as an air conditioning service mechanic before deciding to open his own air conditioning company in 1983 in Lake Mary, FL. Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning became one of the largest companies in the state. He then founded Del-Air plumbing, electric, and appliances companies. His incredible work ethic, determination to succeed, and outgoing personality led to many more successful business endeavors. His passion for golf led him to invest in distressed golf courses in 2002; 6 of them. Recently, teaming up with local government, he offered a 4 year technician training program at Lyman High School to help kids that wanted to learn a trade. He was a mentor to many people. He served on the board of the Seminole and Orange County Sheriffs Department. He was a great momentous figure in the growth and development of Central Florida, but most importantly he was an incredible man to his family who loved him dearly.

His passions in life besides spending time with his family was golfing with his buddies and working in his yard. He loved to spend time with his grandsons riding on his lawn mower and recently bought a fire truck so he could take his grandkids for rides on his property. He taught his family the meaning of generosity and to always think of others. His family and friends will miss him tremendously.
