LOUDONVILLE- Salvatore “Sam” Gatto, age 82, formerly of Latham and Loudonville passed away on May 14, 2020. Sam served his country in the United States Army as a Military Police Officer stationed in South Korea. Upon being discharged, Sam was employed by Pepsi in Latham for over 40 years until his retirement. He was a lifelong Yankees and NY Giants fan and attended many games with friends and family. You would always know if he was watching a game because he would yell at the TV.

Sam was born on March 16, 1938 in Albany to Salvatore and Anna Gatto (predeceased) as the youngest of 5 children, Phyllis, Rose, Anthony and Josephine (all predeceased). He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Karen; daughter Kelly and her husband Jerry; son Anthony and his wife Megan; 6 grandchildren Christiana Angerami, Lenny Angerami, Anthony Angerami (Michele), Veronica Wilson (Michael), Kevin Stone (Bekah) and Mary Grace Stone; 6 great-grandchildren, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A special thanks to Dr. Gordon and the nurses on 4 Pavilion. Sam was a man who stood by his family and loved them above himself. He was selfless to a fault. Sam has now gone onto his heavenly reward. The scriptures assure us that when our earthly house, our tabernacle is dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, but eternal in the heavens. One day we will see him again.

A private service is being held at the request of the family.

If you would like to make a donation as a remembrance to Sam, one can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association: http://www.ALZ.org.
