Reno, NV: Surrounded by family, Samuel J. Spoto, a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend, passed peacefully on July 2, 2013. Mr. Spoto, son of Scililian immigrants, was born Sept. 26, 1917 in Rochester, NY, and raised there. He served in the U.S. Postal Service over 25 years and in the U.S. Army during World War II in Okinawa. He was married to his life's love, Nellie Spoto, for over 67 years.
Known for his sense of humor, green thumb, and ability to fix anything, Mr. Spoto retired with his wife in 1975 to Carson City from Southern California, where his family lived since 1957. A past president of the Sertoma Club and Friends of the Library, his kindness touched many lives. He is survived by his sister, Mary Stio; two daughters, Patricia Morgan and Elaine Brooks; granddaughters Shannon Miller, Gina Torry, and Lisa Torry-Smith; and great-grandchildren, Mackenzie, Adam and Haley Miller and Logan Smith.
Services will be held at St. Teresa of Avila, in Carson City, on July 13th.
