Longtime City Island resident and a member of the Greatest Generation passed away. Russell F.
Schaller was 93 years young and enjoyed a wonderful sense of humor 1923 - 2016.

Russ was a very talented man and was extremely supportive when I was considering launching CITY IMAGES several years ago. Over time, I had the opportunity of writing several stories about him and his friends and neighbors.

Services will be held at Sisto Funeral Home, 3489 E Tremont Avenue, The Bronx, Thursday, December 1, from 2 to 5 pm and 7 to 9 pm. The funeral will be at St. Mary, Star of the Sea Church on Friday at 10 a.m.…

Sgt. Schaller enjoyed talking about growing on City Island. He volunteered on The Island Current, on the City Island Civic Association, as well as The Museum and Historical Society.
