Obituary for James "Jim" Salzo Sr.

James "Jim"  Salzo Sr.
James (Jim) Salzo Sr., 89, of West Haven passed away June 23, 2013 at Golden Hill Health Care Center, surrounded by his loving family. Born in New Haven on November 15, 1923 to Michael & Josephine Salzo Sr. Jim leaves behind his son David (Natalie) Salzo, 3 grandchildren Jodi Trudden, Jacquelyn Harper & Jason Salzo, 5 great grandchildren James & Julianna Trudden, Ghianna Salzo, Mia & Mallory Harper, daughter in law Jeanne Salzo, and many nieces & nephews. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 65 years, Rose Pilletere, elder son James Salzo, Jr., his sisters Carmel, Anna, Josephine & his triplet Helen, his brothers Philip, Anthony, Michael Jr, & Andrew, along with other brothers & sisters that did not survive into adulthood. Jim’s parents were well known for their 21 children, of whom Jim was the last survivor. The 21 children included the first known surviving set of quadruplets in New Haven, triplets, and two sets of twins. Jim honorably served his country with the Army during WWII, and earned 4 medals during his service. He was a longtime employee of Trans-Lite of Milford. Once married, he & Rose never left each other’s side. They loved traveling, especially to his parent’s native Italy, spending time with family, but mostly he enjoyed playing the lottery and cheering on his beloved NY Giants. His grandchildren & great grandchildren were his pride & joy. He was loved & respected by all who met him. He was not a good man, but a great one. The family would like to express special thanks to the Staff at the VA of West Haven who cared for him most of his life & the wonderful staff at Golden Hill in Milford who only knew him a short time but cared for him with dignity & respect in his final days.
Visitation will be Saturday morning from 8:30 to 9:30 at the West Haven Funeral Home at the Green. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 10:00 in St. Lawrence Church. Interment with military honors will be in All Saints Cemetery.
