Russell J. Tagliareni



Russell Joseph Tagliareni passed away on February 21, 2021.  A 63-year resident of Nanuet, NY, he was born in Jersey City, NJ.  Russell was the son of Salvatore and Francesca (Loreca) Tagliareni, and brother to Tina Tagliareni and Sal Tagliareni (Elaine).  He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years Rosemary, daughters Mary Lou Fyrwald, Susan Daly, Anne Belden and Joan Tagliareni, sons-in-law Erik Fyrwald, James Daly, and Steve Belden, six grandchildren Kristina, Jacqueline, Scott, AnnaLise, Shawn, and Christian, and many nieces and nephews.
