Sal was a former plumber and business owner in Del Rio. Even after becoming disabled in
1990, he remained very active. Whether he was buying, fixing, or selling something, he was
always moving along. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. He
always gave valuable advice, not only to his family, but to the many friends he encountered
over the years. He had many friends, who some have referred to him as a father figure of
sorts. He left an everlasting impression on many who have known him, even those that have
known him for a short period of time. To say he was loved and respected by many is an
understatement. He has without a doubt, left a legacy of knowledge and memories, which will
never be forgotten. Sal also had a green thumb and enjoyed caring for plants so in lieu of
flowers, plants would be greatly appreciated.
