Pascrell Mourns Russell Graddy

U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) this evening mourned the passing of Paterson icon Russell Graddy.

“All our streets are mourning. I never called him anything but Russell because my respect for Russell Graddy was overwhelming. But you could get no better pulse for Paterson than over a cup of coffee at his restaurant. For his whole life, Russell was a trailblazer and looked out for community first and always. Russell’s positive energy to make Paterson better was bottomless. We all loved him. We will all miss him.”
