August 24, 1925 – September 3, 2019
Salvatore Felicione of Masaryktown passed away on September 3 after a lengthy illness. Born a son of Italian immigrants in Tampa on August 24, 1925, Sal was a decorated WWII veteran who served in the Philippines, and a UF graduate attending school on the GI Bill. An industrial engineer, Sal spent much of his life working in the Charleston shipyards for the USN, before returning to the Tampa area in retirement. Sal was a sweet guy, always had a kind word, and would help anyone who needed it. He loved gardening and being outside in his “Piazza” as he called it. Sal was also a dancing machine, spending weekends boogying the night away with Judy, his wife and of whom he said, “Brought him out of the darkness and into the light.” His father and mother, Saverio and Concetta Soldano Felicione, predeceased him in death, as did Fannie, his first wife, Sharon Jacobson, his daughter, brothers Frank and Joe, and Lucy, his sister. Survivors include Judy, his brother Johnny and Johnny’s wife, Mary, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Interment will be at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell. As per Sal’s request, no funeral service will be held.

Thank you for sharing your love and support for Sam. I remember when he first told me about you.
He was as thrilled as a young teenage boy!He found a “ dance partner” who he could spend time with.
Sam was always kind, generous , positive and upbeat.He experienced some tragedies in his life,but never grew bitter and he carried on. Thank goodness you were there to bring joy to him in his later life.
My condolences to you and family.
