In his later years he just enjoyed being at camp and doing all the cooking for the hunters. You could often find him going to the Scott family farm and helping where he could whether it was strawberry picking, delivering mums, or riding the tractor. He looked forward to Christmas and being the Santa handing out gifts. He enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s ball games and giving a point or two. Sam donated many hours of service for 13 years at the UVM Medical Center, Dialysis Program where he helped the nurses and staff, who loved him. He was also a loving caretaker for his wife Alberta for many years. Sam missed maple sugaring with his good friend and he will be missed by all those who knew and loved him.

He is survived by his two sons Sam Edmund Tatro, Jr. and wife Georgie of Essex, Gary Tatro and wife Lisa of St. Albans, two daughters Melba Chase, Lynda Moralee, both of Florida, his sister-in-law Betty Tatro of Williston, seven grandchildren Jason Tatro, Amy Quaglietta and husband David, Tammy Cerroni and husband Brian, Scott Chase and wife Jenna, Tyler Tatro, Stephanie Banfield and Justin Banfield, six great grandchildren Gabby, Sam, Christopher, Chase, Madeline, Liam and several nieces and nephews.
