Peter was born in Worcester, a son of the late John and Josephine H.

He was a huge animal lover especially for his beloved dog, “Pablo,” who he often referred to as “a gift from heaven.”

Peter is survived by his longtime companion of nearly 46 years, Joan Skaff; two sons, Anthony Salvatore of Webster, Mark Salvatore of Florida, a daughter Linda Salvatore of Florida, a sister Amanda Teczar of Worcester and several nieces and nephews.   He is predeceased by a son, Peter M. Salvatore, a brother, John Salvatore, Jr.; two sisters, Carmella Morris and Mary Pascarelli.
