David S. Sallome
David S. Sallome, 58 of Batavia, passed away peacefully at Premier Genesee Rehab & Nursing Center on Palm Sunday, April 14th, surrounded by his family, after a 5 year battle with cancer. He was born on December 18th, 1960 to Samuel J. and MaryJane (Pappalardo) Sallome.
If you knew Dave, you knew that he rarely put himself before others. He would do anything for anyone. He was such a kind soul and was loved by many. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and spending time visiting with his family and friends who meant the world to him. He worked as a mechanic for many years until joining his brother at Sallome Heating where he worked until his illness prevented him from doing so.
Surviving along with his parents are three brothers, John (Marianne); Stephen (Penny) and Samuel II (Jaime) all of Batavia, along with several nieces and nephews; Adam, Maria, Jenna, Stephen Jr, Emily, John, Jr., Samuel III, Emma and one great niece, Alivia.
David, even in death, wanted to help others, so he donated his body to the University at Buffalo Medical Research Center. There will be no calling hours. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family. Memorials for David are suggested to Genesee Cancer Assistance C/O United Memorial Medical Center, 127 North St., Batavia NY 14020 or to a Charity of the donor’s choice.
