Salvatore Roberto, Jr. (Sam, Sammy, Sal or Sam I am) of Mechanicsburg, PA, passed away peacefully in his home the morning of November 1, 2020 at age 60.
Sam was born January 12, 1960 in Harrisburg, PA to Salvatore and Immacolata (Bianchi) Roberto. Family supporting/celebrating his life include his wife Rhonda (Pendell) Roberto; daughter Katharine (Kate) Roberto and son Nicholas (Nick) Roberto; sister Maria (Roberto) Jennings and brother Joseph Roberto; in addition to many beloved nephews and nieces.
He was a graduate of Bishop McDevitt High School Class of 1978. Sam left us too soon but provided many memories and personal connections with everyone he met. He would always bring laughter to any room he was in with a witty and sarcastic sense of humor. He loved blues music, football (Dallas Cowboys specifically), bow hunting at camp, and a cold beer at the end of the day.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, November 6 at 2:00 p.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 225 Salt Road, Enola, PA 17025 with visitation from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Sam was a vivacious person and in his honor the family invites all who loved him to a Celebration of Life at the Enola Sportsmen’s Club Outdoor Bar and Pavilion on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at 12:00 p.m.
The Sullivan Funeral Home is honored to serve the Roberto family.
