I worked with Sal for a couple years, ending about 5 years ago. Always loved his "Sal Bananas" stories and matching car! Just found this guestbook, wanted to offer my condolences to his family. I'll always remember his smile and laugh!

Sal was the best. So funny, I loved him.

I am so sorry for your loss, Louise and Donna.

I loved when he lived on Salem St, and worked sometimes at

M and A Fruit on Cross St. All we ever did was laugh. One of a

kind, that's what Sal was. He will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Sal's passing. I bought 3 of my Ford vehicles from Sal over the last few years including 2 years go when I bought my Ford Edge. Sal was so funny. I would visit him when I would bring my truck in for an oil change; the last I heard he was in Florida, and I was happy to hear that. Now I am sad to hear he passed away. He had a great sense of humor. He really was a good car salesman! My deepest sympathies.

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that the words found at Psalm 147,verse 3 bring you some comfort during this sad time.

At one time, Sal was the best car salesman in New England. His larger than life personality and his abilty to make people feel like they were sitting at the kitchen table (instead of at a car dealership) made him very successful. He would give a box of Italian cookies to all his customers and they never forgot that. We still use him as an example of how to make yourself memorable and how to build your customer base. He is missed. He is remembered.
