Salvatore Savoca was born on July 27, 1934 to Vincenzo and Maria Savoca, and was the baby of 3 children. Growing up Sal had an interest in tools and building which he inherited from his grandfather, and following these dreams he went to Queens Vocational High School. Following high school, he went to work for Andrea Radio Co. where he met his best friends Vito and Margaret Tagliente. Margaret introduced Sal to a beautiful woman...her sister Catherine on a blind-date. Sal went into the army during the Korean war, however he never went into active duty. When his enlistment was up he returned home where in 1959 he married Catherine. The newly weds had 2 children a boy Vincent, and then a little girl Joyia. Sal's new position was in Singer Sewing Machine, where he ran stores, and repaired machines. At age 55, Sal welcomed his first grandchild, Joyia's daughter Keri Ann in 1989. Keri was followed by her brother Kevin Anthony in 1991. Vincent brought his first child in 1991 Michael Salvatore, and the last grandchild arrived in 1997 in the shape of little Steven Vincent. Sal spoiled his grandkids, and his wife, and was truly loved by all who ever were lucky enough to cross paths with him. Sadly years of smoking took their toll on Salvatore, and on April 14, 2001 he lost his quick battle with lung cancer. He left behind a very upset family, who all love and miss him very much. Even though we can't reach out and grab his hand anymore, we know he is with us..and always will be. Rest in Peace.
