We are so very saddened to hear about Sal’s passing. Sal was a true gentleman and had the most wonderful sense of humor. The memories that we have of all the good times in Commack and Josie and Sal’s visits to Orlando will never be forgotten . We will cherish these sweet memories forever. We love you Sal and Josie too. Our sympathy goes out to the entire Piazza family

We were sad to learn of Sal's passing. We shared many times together with Sal and Jo. Not only golf and bowling, but along with other friends, we never missed going to dinner for every major holiday, and a lot of lunches, movies, and trips in between. Sal was always good at athletics, and a fierce competitor, but always fun to be with. We know Jo will have the courage to carry on in these difficult times. God Bless you, Sal, and rest in peace.

Love, Doris and Larry

Sal is dead.

He physically died of complications from Dementia in the afternoon hours of 2/16/21, at the age of 88. Shortly before his death, he came to me in Hawaii, at about 12:15 AM, to put me on notice that he was going, when I was on the cusp of falling into rem sleep, saying: “Tommy, I am dying.” Our daughter, Deja Vu, had a similar experience in Arkansas. Of course, the real Sal, the one we all new and loved, was mentally not of this world when he departed. He had long since exited his psychological being.

There is no sense dwelling on the Sal who was on the verge of physical death. It was not a graceful ending to his life. I prefer to remember my brother as he was during my youth, the Sal of unquenchable energy and love for family. I prefer to remember IL Salvatore, the protector, the family guardian, always on duty, always loyal to each member of our extended family. Sal was a legend in his own time.

In 2008, I published my Memoir. There were seven chapters in the book. I devoted the whole of chapter two to Sal, my Sally. I wrote over 18,000 words in twenty-eight pages about him and how he influenced my life. I ended Sal’s chapter—the only chapter I devoted solely to one individual—with the following thoughts that I now pass on to all of you:

“There are many more stories of “Il Salvatore;” further stories will have to await the screenplay of Sal's life. Suffice it to say at this point that it was always easy to distinguish Sally in a crowd. Like all people of the Planet, whose innocence and basic goodness makes their souls’ shine brightly, he would be the one smiling from his heart. He would be the one forever on patrol, protecting those dearest to him.

“Sally, we will forever remember and love you!”

Sally, vai in pace…

Sempre amore, Brother Tom & Lu e Famiglia
