    Sal was a friend to all of us at Tin Fish restaurant. A wonderful and dedicated employee but more then that, a strong and terrific person to be around. Always appreciated and greatly missed.

    Sal was a good man, a man of integrity and honor. He never complained and never let anything slow him down. There’s Is no doubt he’s going to the “Good side” and will have no problem finding his way. Sal loved Geography and took great pride in quizzing me on his knowledge of it. It was a pleasure to have known him, my condolences to his family. He inspired me in many ways and unknowingly constantly reminded me that nothing was worth complaining about. Rest with pride in peace Sal Sal
