Russell J. Baiocco, Sr., age 68, a longtime resident of Glen Mills, passed away on November 24, 2017 after a battle with cancer. He was raised and educated in Chichester, where he graduated from Chichester High School in 1967. He was the son of the late Bernard C. and Anna (Cella) Baiocco and father of the late Russell “Rusty” Baiocco, Jr. Russell was an entrepreneur who owned and operated many local businesses. Russell was an avid boater and sports fisherman who enjoyed spending time on his boat the American Lady, fishing with his children and grandchildren in Ocean City, MD. He loved to travel to, as long as he could get there by boat or truck. He was a man who couldn’t pass up a deal and always kept it old school. Russell loved cooking and grilling for gatherings that brought his family, friends and everyone he meet along the way together. He was not only the life of the party, but made the party happen. He was a generous man that always made the room a bit more interesting whenever he walked in, usually with a joke or story to tell. Russell loved his family, and he enjoyed spending every moment he could with his grandsons.

I think it was back in 1993/94 I was on the Southside of the White marlin Marina washing my boat and this guy walks by with a cigar tucked neatly in the corner of his mouth. He abruptly shouts out YOU COMMIN TO MY PICNIC! I thought to myself, “who the hell is this guy?” Long story short, we went to the picnic and immediately felt like family, then over the next 20+ years I came to know "this guy" Russell Baiocco as a Bigger than life, “Character” . We found him to be one of the most genuine, caring, sharing, and generous individuals we have met in our travels. There was never any question where you stood with him. Always had a joke or story that he would lure you in with only make you laugh, he loved life and all it meant. I am so grateful our paths in life crossed, honored to be considered his friend. Diann and I will miss him dearly. Our sincerest condolences to all his friends and family, You are all in our Thoughts, Prayers and Hearts. Love Keith and Diann
