Rockland "Rocky" Russo had been a major presence in slot racing and on these forums for many years, I had corresponded with him for some years and his enthusiasm and knowledge were very impressive. He seems to have gone through just about every phase in slot racing, from back in the very early days of rail and motorizing Strombecker kits, through pro racing, wing cars, vintage (but still very contemporary to Rocky) and more.
He was a unique individual and will be sorely missed. I highly recommend you read EM's tribute to him on SlotBlog.
