Salvati of Charlotte, NC and Elizabeth A. Salvati (Stephen Samp) of Atlanta, GA; and two grandchildren who fondly call him Grandpa, Mary Grace Samp and Anna Marie Samp of Atlanta, GA. Tony is also survived by his sister, Mary Mahoney of Memphis, TN and brothers, Dennis Salvati of Bellmore, NY and John Salvati of Sebastopol, CA.
