He was a graduate of Highland High School, Class of 2011. Sal was a sports enthusiast.

One of the highlights of Sal’s life was when he was chosen to be a part of the Special Olympics softball team in Seattle, Washington where he met his all-time favorite D.J. “Marshmello” 

Sal also had a passion for music and dancing. He attended many concerts.  His favorite non-stop dance music was EDM.  Sal loved all animals, especially "Happy" the dog, who slept with Sal when visiting his Mom in Florida. He looked forward to haircuts with Aunt Carmel and Aunt Connie always dreamed of having a club night out with Sal, to learn the latest dance moves! 

He was a social butterfly with a heart of gold who was loved my all.
