Sal was a proud member of the United States Army National Guard and was honorably discharged after 6 years of service. He retired from Southern Natural Gas Company after 36 years of dedicated service. He will be forever remembered as a faithful and devoted husband, father, and friend. Sal was a lifelong successful farmer who had a passion for working with his brothers on the family farm. He was known for expressing his joy and love for life and people through freely sharing of his harvest…especially in the weeks and years following hurricane Katrina.
