My name is Bill Hankison. I was on the Simon Bolivar with Rosie. I had a good time with him in 68 and 69. He taught many things about the boat. He was a key person in the crew. He would help anyone with their quals for the sub. My prayers are with the family and my God Bless.

Oh, Sharon. We are so, so sorry to learn of Sal's passing. He fought long and hard and loved you all so very much. Please don't hesitate to call if you need a shoulder. You are still very much a part of our family. Love, Rick and Gwynne Donohue

We grieve with you on the loss of your loved one and our shipmate. The SUBVETS will have your family in our thoughts and prayers. There is no expiration date on the back of our dolphins and Salvatore, who earned his 'fish' when he qualified on USS SIMON BOLIVAR SSBN-641, will always be remembered as a Brother of the Phin and a great Patriot.
