To Joe's family . I am so sorry for your loss. It has been at least 60 years that I have seen any of the family., but growing up in Santa Ana, the few memories I do have, has always had the Solis family on top of the list. Your support and acceptance of me will always be remembered.

I attended Mater Dei High School with Sal. We had art class with Ms. Calienni. One assignment was to draw a picture in black and white of someone. He chose his girlfriend, Linda Gomez. Since I sat next to him, I’d glance over and think how pretty she was! Ms Calienni would tell him, “ Sal, make her nose more tilted. Her nose is tilted up more”,
She finally approved of his drawing. ; he had captured his love perfectly! He’d wear his football varsity letterman’s jacket and I really thought he was BMOC. RIP, fellow Monarch. Ruby Munoz Gonzales 1963

For 20 plus years I would go visit my dad and brother at their work. I would walk in and greet my Uncle Sal first. He always gave the biggest hugs and genuinely cared about what I was doing with myself. I will always cherish visiting him first.
