As a child, Salâs thoughtful, kind-hearted nature emerged and it stayed with him throughout his life. He grew up in the Bay Area and developed a love for football, loud music and Harley Davidson motorcycles. Sal was known for his fun-loving, easy going, laid back personality. One of Salâs greatest qualities was his absolute love & admiration for his family. When he was healthy enough, you would always find Sal in the stands at his grandkids' sporting events. Sal was a lifelong and loyal San Francisco 49âers fan. During his career, Sal was a business owner for EB Floor Covering, a Truck Driver and an Electrician. Sal was known for his slow and steady pace, always taking pride in his work and putting quality above all else. Sal believed firmly in always doing the right thing and never cutting corners. Sal was a man of few words, but when he spoke, everyone listened.
Sal will be remembered by those who knew him best as a caring, loving, devoted, determined, sometimes stubborn, slightly mischievous, proud as heck family man. Sal had the best smile and a twinkle in his eye that will always be missed and never forgotten.
