Salvatore Petrillo, husband, father and grandfather, passed away on November 22, 2016, after a long and rich life of over 91 years.
He immigrated to the United States, via Ellis Island NY, 61 years ago from San Benedetto, Caserta, Italy. The 16th of 18 children, he was the last of a line of siblings spanning from WWI through WWII.

The World Trade Center, Shea Stadium and Lincoln Center are but of a few of the projects he contributed to in his 35 year career.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 43 years, Angela Maria Petrillo, their five children; Domenico, Maddalena, Salvatore Jr., Angela Jr. and Maria, their grandchildren and step-grandchildren.
