Salvatore Ciaramitaro "Sam"
Salvatore passed away suddenly on November 27, 2012, at the age of 73. Sam was born on March 22, 1939 in Terrasini, Sicily and moved to the United States in 1955. In 1960 he married his wife Grace (Ciolino) in San Pedro where they began their lives together. He worked as a commercial fisherman as a mast man (fish spotter) and was known for having the sharpest eyes in the ocean; he retired forty years later. He was a master of many trades and would help his loved ones with anything they needed. He poured his heart into any task and completed each one with perfection and precision. He was his happiest when spending time with his children, especially his grandchildren who were his pride and joy. Love, pride and dedication were what he lived by! He was an active member of the Italian American Club and St. Peter's Society. He is survived by his wife Grace, his children Mary (Mike) Cammareri, Donny (Sandra) Ciaramitaro, Geralyn ( Joe) Buscaino, Anna Moore and his grandchildren Paola, Gracelyn, Sammy, Brandon, Matteo, Gia and Lucas, including his extended family and friends.
