David Salatino

Greece - After a courageous two year battle with cancer, our David earned his wings. A kind, gentle soul with enormous strength and courage he loved his family, faith, music and cooking. A professional musician, David or "Doc" as his friends called him played throughout Rochester at events, clubs and benefits. His culinary skills were honed by the side of his beloved grandmother Elisa and enjoyed by all of us. Papa to his cherished grandchildren, they brought him much pride and joy.

David was predeceased by his parents Rose and Paul Salatino. Survived by his devoted wife of 47 years, Margaret; sons Mark & Matthew (Judy) Salatino; grandchildren Isabel, Dominic, Gianna, and Alicia; brother Paul Salatino Jr., brother-in-law Anthony (Patricia) DiBiase, sister-in-law Laura (Michael) Bruno; uncles Raymond (Libby) Pannone, Sam (Josephine) Pannone; many dear cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Friends may call Friday 5-7 at Farrell-Ryan Funeral Home, 777 Long Pond Road. Funeral Mass Saturday 10:30 at Our Mother of Sorrows Church. Interment Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

In 1969 a nervous kid approached the older cool guy playing at a junior high school and found a friend. He introduced to people I still hold dear.
Was part of many of my best memories. For years a close friend, always a good friend.
Thank you Dave.
A little piece of me goes with you.

Hey Doc, I just want to say, there wasn't a day that went by that I wasn't thinking of you. I was hoping to see you back up and playing again and recording some good music. I will never forget you my friend, bandmate and brother. I will always cherish the time we played together and had some really times. I hope to see you soon and May you Rest in Peace. And also say hello to Rich for me I love you forever. God be with you.
