Ralph T. Salvatore, 83, of Providence, passed away peacefully on Sunday November 21st.  He was the beloved husband of Natalie (Viccione) Salvatore for 60 years.

Born in Providence, he was the son of the late Theodore and Anna (Fanelli) Salvatore.

Mr. Salvatore was a Housing Inspector for the City of Providence for over 30 years and a proud member of LIUNA Local 1033.

Ralph was a long-time member of the Providence Democratic City Committee, concluding his tenure as Chairman of the Fourteenth Ward Committee in 2010.
