Russell Newsome, known to family as Russell the Muscle or Russ, was called to Heaven March 6th, 2018. Taken at only 18 years old, it was extremely unexpected. Russell resided in San Tan Valley, Arizona with his wife Aaliyah and daughter Rosalie Newsome. He was loved by many and loved many as he had such a kind and caring heart. Russell was born in Framingham, MA on August 12, 1999 to Robert Newsome and Debora Conners. Growing up, Russell loved traveling and was always the life of the room with his one of a kind personality and laugh. At 16, Russell, his mother and Aaliyah moved to Winter Harbor, ME where he discovered his love for lobster fishing. Russell and Aaliyah moved back to Arizona in 2016 when they were pregnant with their daughter, born November 2016. Russell was the youngest of three boys and had always spoke of wanting a younger brother and sister, which he always said he found in his wife’s younger siblings. They married May 30, 2017. Russell was an amazing husband and father. Russell lives on through his mother Debora, father Chris, older brothers Christopher and Tristan, brother-in-law Isaiah, sister-in-law Mercedes, wife Aaliyah, daughter Rosalie, and soon-to-be-born son Leon.
