Obituary for Salvatore Cavaretta

Salvatore Cavaretta, 92

Eastchester resident, Salvatore Cavaretta passed away on Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020 at White Plains Hospital in Westchester County, New York.

Mr. Cavaretta was born on December 5th, 1927 in Brooklyn, NY to Gasper and Vita Cavaretta.

From an early age, Sal developed a real talent for singing and became an avid Frank Sinatra fan. One of his favorite songs was “Pennies from Heaven”, which he would often perform at various family gatherings.

Sal supported his family by working two jobs, driving a truck during the week and waiting tables on the weekends. Sal and his beloved wife Ann (dec. 2016) of 69 years eventually moved to Queens, where they started a family.

Sal had such an enthusiasm for life and enjoyed shooting pool, nice cars and cruising around on his bicycle. Selflessly, Sal was also involved in his community church, The Immaculate Heart of Mary in Scarsdale, where he served for many years as an usher after moving from Queens to Eastchester NY, where he lived for 25 years.

He also loved to watch his son Stephen play guitar while performing at one of his gigs in Manhattan, and dancing with his daughter Suzanne whenever they had the chance.

Sal is survived by his son Stephen, daughter Suzanne Losey and her husband Pat, granddaughters Jennifer Losey, Vita DeQuatro and her husband Darren, great grandsons Jaxson and Cameron DeQuatro, his niece Denise Esposito and her husband Frank.

A special thanks to Joyce Amorah and Alecia Small from Azor agency for their unconditional love and care for Sal the past 6 years.

Due to the ongoing fight with the novel coronavirus, we are unable to say goodbye the way we would have hoped. Keep smiling Dad, we love you, rest in peace.

While John and I didn’t have a relationship with Sal, we were fortunate to hear such beautiful stories from Suzanne and Pat recounting wonderful memories from the past. He must have been a very special man to have fathered such a kind, thoughtful and dedicated daughter and family. We know he will Rest In Peace with his dear wife, Anne, and will look down on the family with lots of love. Sing on!

Dear Uncle Sal, I'm was very saddened to hear the news of your passing. I loved you from the day Denise (Nits) introduced me to the family. You welcomed me with such warmth. There are many memories to reflect. One thing I will remember was when we were at Vita's house two years ago at Jaxson's party and you always asked me to get another glass of wine and then tell me don't tell my daughter. I always ended up getting it for you because I knew how much you loved your glass of wine. I enjoyed talking to you when we visited you and Aunt Ann. I will miss you. You were one great uncle. Rest in peace. Frank (Cheech)

Sal, I will always remember your smile, your joy and the happiness you brought to your family. You may remember me as "the girl with the red hat" from our younger days when Suzanne and I were out dancing. Those were some of our best years. Your love for Annie and all of your family was and is still to this day, displayed through their love for you, family, and friends. You taught us all well. May you rest peacefully but never stop singing and dancing with your gal.

I’ve had the pleasure to know the Cavaretta Family since my early 20s. My favorite and most loving memory was eating Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing. It was the most delicious stuffing! I still have the recipe.
When you see your Ann in heaven, tell her that the “original spice girl” says that she learned a great deal “over the kitchen table.” Life’s cherished memories: love, family, soul, kindness, strength, and beauty.
