I am saddened to hear about the passing of Sal. I am a court reporter and he was the legal videographer in numerous video depositions we worked together on over the years. He was always so lively and fun to talk to, a joy to work with. My deepest condolences to his family 😪

Biography

Thank you all for joining us today to celebrate Sal’s life. His life will live on through his kids and grandkids.

It’s not ever easy to say goodbye to someone who was so important and touched all of our lives. Sal was loved so dearly by all of us, now there’s an empty hole left, that’s what we’re all feeling today. We’ll be sad and things will be different without him, but we have to be strong for each other to get through this together.

Some of you knew Sal better than others, but you’re here because he had an impact on your life, and you want to honor that. And because he did affect you in some way, it’s not going to be easy to say goodbye. He’d be happy today knowing all of you are here honoring what a great man he was. He’ll be remembered forever.

It’s important to remember the good old times we all shared with Sal. By holding on to those memories, we can all focus on the good times we had with him, and help each other find comfort and peace. He wouldn’t want us to cry and hold back our lives, just cause he’s not here with us. He’d want all of us to make the best of life, and keep it moving forward. He would say, keep stacking them chips, and see how high it can get.

To the Rodriguez family. He used to tell me stories all the time about how he had so much fun as a kid. Those are the memories he will take with him. Playing marbles, the WWE fights you guys had. Him making those fight belts. And always clowning each other playing, laughing and growing. He loved his childhood memories. He talked about it all the time. In his teenage years, how he was afraid of girls. How naïve he would say he was. Like how the heck a handsome looking guy like him be afraid of girls, but he was. Memories and conversations like that, I’ll never forget. Keep telling those stories so your kids don’t forget what a wonderful person Sal was. He will live on in all our memories.

Mom and dad. He loved you guys so much. He loved taking you to breakfast at Denny’s and just having your company because he wouldn’t be here if he didn’t have great parents. Taking you to the casino because he knew how much you enjoyed being there. He’d do anything you ask of him. He would want you both to be happy that you raised a good son. You kept him grounded and always looking at life as a challenge to keep pushing it to the limit. He just started to find his way in life. He was stacking his chips; and looking at life for a better future for me and his kids. But he didn’t get to complete his journey because god had a better plan for him. It was cut short, so now his children must complete the journey for him.

His kids and myself will miss him most of all. We won’t hear him laugh, hear his voice, giving us advice on how he sees life, and how much we meant to him, and he to us. Him screaming at Jr for being too loud on the video games, or him saying hey old lady what you doing or where you want to go? Hey big guy you want to go look for some transformers. Or him calling out to his princess Justine at bedtime, just so she’ll poke her face in our bedroom door. Him walking down the hallway to see what any of us were doing. We’re going to miss him so much.

I ask myself how will I go on. We were 24/7, two peas in a pod, each other’s ball and chain. You wouldn’t see us without one or the other, but unless I was upset with him. We worked together lived together. I don’t know how 23 years went by so fast and we didn’t kill each other. We loved each other despite some of our differences. We didn’t let stupid arguments get in the way of our feelings for one another. He was a stubborn, impatient difficult man to live with. But I usually let him have his way. At the end of the day, it was always an I’m sorry and we moved on.

I will miss our movie dates and dinner, that was our thing, since we first met.

“You want to catch a flick or something.” That’s how he asked me out. I thought he was so cheesy, but he was so darn handsome, how could I resist. That’s what made him so unique and such a wonderful person. You never know what’s going to come out of his mouth. To know him is to love him. He had a very strong personality. Some people might take it the wrong way, but if you really got to know Sal, he’s just a comedian trying to make everyone laugh. He loved cracking jokes. That was him. Except him for who he is, he would always say. So, I learned to accept the Leo in him my Mufasa.

It’s hard to say goodbye to someone who had such a big part in our lives. It’s always hard to lose someone you know, to let go of him and move on. But if we keep those good memories in our hearts and minds, we can find peace and comfort, and Sal will always be with us.

Just all of you being here today, you’re showing Sal had an impact on you. And that’s a great comfort to me to know that he touched so many of your lives like he touched mine. And that’s how we should always remember Sal. We’ll love you always and forever Sal. Till we meet again one day. Rest in paradise my love.
