Salvatore was a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend to all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Outside of his family some of his greatest memories were had during times he spent out on the golf course. Golf was a big passion that Salvatore had and played as often as he could. He loved the challenge both mental and physical and enjoyed being able to spend time with good friends and family especially his brother Pasquale. Salvatore also had quite the soft spot in his heart for his daughter’s dog Turbo and loved to spend the day cruising around with the windows open and making sure to stop at the local Dunkin so turbo could get his treats.

Salvatore is predeceased by his parents Pasquale and Carmella Grillo, and by his sister Ann Emmons.
