I am deeply saddened to learn of Sal's passing. Little more can be said that what has already been written by others in praise of this great man. I first knew Sal in the mid-sixties when I attended St. Augustine H.S. in Brooklyn. Without a doubt, he was my finest (and favorite) teacher. He is often spoken of as a mentor to so many in the theater world. I recall him as a most inspirational instructor in poetry and drama. As a previous "guest book" signer said, he often found in you those qualities of character of which you yourself were unaware. Such was my case at St. A's. I will never forget this wonderful man. Requiescat in pace, Sal.

I met Sal when I first got out of grad school at an off-off B'way company at a church on E. 47th Street. I read for "Light up the Sky" and got a small part. Sal was in the company. I then played his niece in Ah, Wilderness. He was terrific. We formed a lasting friendship. He asked me to come out to Brooklyn and do Eleanor in "The Lion in Winter." I couldn't resist the offer! Robert Ginty, a former student of his, played Henry. He went on to some fame and fortune and died too young. A few years after Lion, Sal asked me to do Phyllis in "Follies," a favorite show of his and mine. We had a great time doing it. Sal and I remained good friends all these years. He was acerbic and quite witty,sort of an American Oscar Wilde. He was a wonderful teacher for his students, instilling them with self-worth and a love for theater.
Good night, dear friend. May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

I am sad to learn of Sal's passing. He was a gentle soul who demonstrated patience with me and passed along his life's lesson that I use some 30+ years later. Sal leaves a rich legacy behind in the lives he touched as a teacher and mentor. My life is more cultured and complete for having known him.

My condolences to Sal's family. I was a student of Sal's when he taught English at Mater Christi HS. Sal was one of the greatest teacher I have ever met in my life. He was able to see what you were capable of doing before you even recognized it in yourself. Then he would encourage and inspire you to go beyond the boundaries you imposed upon yourself. Sal was also a hysterically funny man whose quips still make me laugh many years after he uttered them. Rest in peace Sal. You will always have a place in our hearts.
