Anyone that knew Sal knew what a lovely person he truly was. We have been so fortunate to have had him in our lives all these years and are better people for it. He will be missed so much more than any words could possibly express.
Sal was the greatest man and father. I have never met anyone who didn't love Sal as soon as they met him. He had such a kind way about him. He was also one of the best salesman ever! He won many awards, and opened California for a Little Debbie snack cakes. When no one could get into the chain stores, Sal did it! Words cannot describe the kind of man Sal was. I will miss him every day of my life.
