PITTSFORD — David Rusin, 61, passed away on June 16, 2019.

He was predeceased by his father, John Rusin.

He is survived by his mother, Clara Rusin, of Auburn; his beloved brother, John Rusin, of Auburn; sisters, Mary (Wayne) Pisano, of Lake Ariel, Pa., Claire Rusin, of Auburn, and Nancy (Randy) Gable, of Weedsport; his beloved nieces, Claire Pisano, of Gladstone, N.J., Valerie (Doug) Scott, of Pipersville, Pa., and Grace Swientonioski, of Weedsport; beloved nephews, Alex Pisano, of Kansas City, Kan., and Rick Swientonioski, of Rochester, N.Y.; his estranged daughter, Leah Rusin; many cousins; and a multitude of friends and business associates.

David was known for his heart of gold and his willingness to help nearly everyone he met. Often working behind the scenes, David financed many causes that were near and dear to his heart, always thinking of the poor and needy. His brother, John, whom God created in a way that would influence David’s compassion for those less gifted, held the most special place in his heart. He was a successful businessman and entrepreneur with a brilliant mind and fiber optics trade magazines featured articles authored by him. He won many awards for his business acumen and success. David inherited an incredible sense of humor from his mom and was a practical joker. Most of all, David was deeply religious and prepared himself for his final resting place with God his entire life. One of the finest people on this planet, David will be missed by an incredible number of people, especially his Auburn family.

As per his wishes, David’s life will be celebrated at a Mass in his hometown of Auburn, N.Y. at 1 p.m. on Friday, June 21, 2019, in Holy Family Church, 85 North St., Auburn, NY 13021.
