Salvatore P. Salamone, 88, of Peabody, with his family the owner of the former Salamone’s Market in Maynard, MA, passed peacefully Mon. Feb. 4, 2019 in Beverly. He was the beloved husband of the late Anne F. (Nobile) Salamone, to whom he was married for 50 years at the time of her passing in 2003.
Born and raised in Maynard and a graduate of Maynard High School, he was the son of the late Rosario and Rosina (Terrasi) Salamone. Mr. Salamone and his family owned and operated Salamone’s Market, a fixture on Main Street in Maynard for 63 years. He and his wife Anne married in 1954, and a month later he began his active service with the 567th US Army Band, serving honorably during the Korean War. A talented musician, he played the clarinet and the saxophone. With his brothers Tony and Peter, he formed Salamone’s Orchestra, entertaining for over 20 years. Mr. Salamone loved ballroom dancing, and in later years traveled to Malden and Beverly to dances every Saturday night. He was a member of the Maynard Lodge of Elks, the St. Anthony’s Society through St. Bridget’s Church, and was active in the community senior centers in Peabody, Saugus, Beverly, and Danvers. He especially cherished time spent with his family and friends, loved and was always so proud supporting the theatre, music and sporting events of his grandchildren; and was looking forward to the birth of his first great-grandchild.
He is survived by a daughter, Rosanne Lambert and her husband Walt of Milford, NH; son Anthony Salamone and his partner Shawn Tumpney of Santa Rosa, CA; grandchildren Lauren Lambert of Milford, NH, and Brian Lambert and his wife Nicole of Islip, NY; a sister Madeline “Cookie” Cyr of Stow; and his dear companion Frieda Palazzo of Revere.
