He was born in Melilli, Italy, on February 11, 1912, the son of the late
Alfonzo and Maria (Giuliano) Timbro.
His life was devoted to his family and his passion for farming and
animals. Salvatore left his home in Melilli, Sicily and brought his
family to this country 54 years ago, so that they could fulfill dreams

wives, Anthony and Ruth Ann Timbro of Middletown, Michael and
Carol Timbro of Middlefield, and Nello and Susan Timbro of
Cromwell. Also his daughter and son-in-law, Mary Ann and Salvatore
Morello of Rockfall. A daughter, Maria, predeceased him. In addition,
he leaves a sister-in-law, Angelina Timbro. He is survived by his 12
adoring grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren from whom he
always requested two kisses. One was never enough.
Salvatore was not only devoted to his children, but also cherished
and loved his many grandchildren.
He served in the Italian Calvary during World War II; yet deeply
instilled patriotism for the United States, his adopted country, in all his
children. Prior to his retirement, he had been employed at the Pierson
Nursery and EIS Automotive.
He will join his parents and siblings in Heaven, as he was the last
remaining of a large family. He was predeceased by his brothers,
Sebastiano and Joseph Mure, and Sebastiano Timbro; his sisters,
Pasquelina DiMauro, Filomena Bronzo, Josephine Parnasso and
Grazia Caccomo and his youngest son, Sebastian Timbro.
The family wishes to thank the staff from Middlesex Healthcare
Center for their continued care and support.
His children will greatly miss his wisdom, sense of humor, and never
ending stories full of life's most important lessons. They were blessed
to have him as a father, grandfather, uncle, mentor, and friend.
Memories of Sunday lunches spent together and afternoons talking
under the grapevines will be forever cherished.
