Sal attended St. Peter and Paul Grade School and Naperville Central High School where he played football and was known for scoring the first touchdown on the new field. After graduation he entered the U.S. Airforce. He worked on aircrafts, learned the trade of sheet metal, and served in the Korean War.
Upon returning from the service, Sal began working as a sheet metal worker for Local 265. He married Janice and moved to Plainfield where they raised six children. When Sal was not working, he could be found helping someone in need or raising money for Muscular Dystrophy by collecting cans or organizing fundraiser events. Sal was a lifetime member of the American Legion Marne Post 13 and went on to manage the organization for many years before retiring to Scottsdale, AZ in 1994.
During retirement, Sal took on many new endeavors such as working at the neighboring Golf Course, managing rental properties, and serving on the board of his Homeowners Association. He was forever busy fixing everyone's everything.
Sal enjoyed playing golf and watching his Grandchildren play sports. He loved his cigars, Canadian Club, Friday Night Fish Fries, and truck rides with his faithful dog Mutt.
Sal will be remembered for his strong dedication to family, his extraordinary work ethic, and his good-hearted helpful nature.
