WATERBURY — Mr. Russell A. "Kelly" Mazzeo, 73, of Lakewood Road, died Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010, at Glendale Center in Naugatuck.

Russ was born in Waterbury on May 16, 1937, son of the late Russell and Angelina (Ammirati) Mazzeo. He was a graduate of Crosby High School, earned a bachelor's degree in education and science from Central Connecticut State University, and a master's degree in biology from Syracuse University. He was a member of the U.S. Naval Reserves, acted as a naval recruiter for several years, and did interviews with prospective naval academy matriculators. He was a research scientist at Uniroyal until retiring in 2002. His research brought him the distinction of two original patents. His proficiency in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian, along with his native English, allowed him to lecture abroad promoting the use of Uniroyal chemical and rubber techniques in those foreign countries.

Russ was a member of the Lakewood Social Club, the Naugatuck Historical Society and the American Chemical Society. He was a two-time chairman of the Connecticut Rubber Group where he also served as their financial committee chairman and directed a scholarship fund under its auspices. He served as social chairman for the Uniroyal Alumni Association where he was responsible for two social events per year. He also lent his social function expertise to his Crosby High School reunion committee which he chaired since his graduation. He was a life member of the Elks Club of Naugatuck and the Navy Seabee Veterans of America, and was a communicant of St. Lucy's Church.

He leaves his brother, Egidio F. "Gene" Mazzeo of Waterbury, with whom he lived, and is also survived by three aunts and several cousins.
