Salvatore Mortillaro passed away on May 8th, 2023.
Born in Marsala, Sicily, Salvatore moved to the United States in 1971, with his wife and children. He resided in Iselin, New Jersey for most of his life. The true definition of the American dream, Salvatore started his successful contracting business that he later co owned with his son.
Although Salvatore was a carpenter by trade, he had strong passions for singing and his beloved soccer team, Juventus. The world was his stage and he made his warm presence known which was felt by many. He was most known for his outgoing spirit, lighting up any room he was in, and the love he had for his family.
Salvatore is survived by his loving wife of 57 years Maria Mortillaro, his daughter Gracey and her husband Benito, daughter Josie and her husband Benedetto, and son Giovanni and his wife Jaimi. He is also survived by eight grandchildren: Bartolomeo, his wife Michele, Alessia, her husband Alessandro, Elisa, her husband Christopher, Gianni, Giuseppe, Giulia, Ava, and John. Along with four great-grandchildren, Antonella, Matthew, Luciana, and Briella.
He will be missed dearly by his family and his memory will live on in all of our hearts forever.
