Resident of Saratoga, CA
Salvadore "Dick" Territo, devoted husband, beloved father, and adored grandfather, passed away on Tuesday after a long struggle with dementia. Through his commitment to service, strong work ethic, and devotion to family Dick touched many lives throughout his lifetime.
Dick was born and raised in Willow Glen CA, graduated Bellarmine High School and earned an associate's degree from San Jose State University. After serving 4 years in the United States Airforce during the Korean War, Dick returned to start his 45 year career in Interior Design, where he served as part-owner of Capri Carpets and Interiors. With a heart for community service, Dick served for more than 30 years in many key leadership roles, such as president, vice-president, and chair of the oratorical contest in the De Anza Optimist Club.
Dick is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Dorothy; devoted children Lisa (Territo) and Bill Alden of Willow Glen CA, Paul and Wendy (Greenley) Territo of Fishers IN; and grandchildren Clare Alden, Makenna Territo, and Sydney Territo. Dick is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law Ida (Territo) and Vince Alongi of Willow Glen CA and their extended families. His generous, loving and kind spirit will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
