Robert Dello Russo, the owner of Del-Air Heating and several golf courses including the former Rock Springs Ridge Golf Course has died at age 70 according to a post on social media from Randy Ross of the Americans Adversaries Radio show.
"We lost a great American in Central Florida who was heavily involved in Central Florida and national politics," Ross wrote on his Facebook page.
In 1983, Dello Russo founded Del-Air Heating and Air Conditioning, which grew into the largest residential heating and air conditioning company in Florida with locations in Sanford, Kissimmee, Clermont, Melbourne, Tampa, Jacksonville, Fort Myers, and Bradenton.
Beginning in 2002, Dello Russo and his partners went on a buying spree of struggling Central Florida golf courses. His purchases included The Country Club of Deer Run in Casselberry, Twin Rivers Golf Course, Casselberry Golf Club, The Country Club of Mount Dora, Wekiva Golf Club, and Rock Springs Ridge Golf Club in 2005.
Rock Springs Ridge closed in 2014.
