Sal was a wonderful colleague, a fine attorney, a knowledgeable and willing resource for the entire bar, and a greatly respected advocate for his individual clients and for the right of all people to have a fair shot in the legal system, regardless of their ability to pay for lawyers. I will always remember him for the leathers he wore to the meetings of the Wayne County Bar Association, his impish smile when he told stories, and the speed with which he responded to requests for help from any of us. He will be sorely missed.

Dear Cathene and family, I am very sorry for your loss. I will miss Sal. We were adversaries on occasion in court but friendly outside, and both ONU graduates. My prayers are with you.
