Salvatore Sapia, known to some as Sal or Sam, and to those who loved him most as Dad, Gramps, or Poppa, passed on Saturday, November 13th, joining his beloved Roslyn in the afterlife.

You won’t find Sal on Facebook or Instagram, but you will find countless photos, home movies, and memories in the homes and hearts of his daughter and son-in-law Rosemarie and Frank Zummo, his son and daughter-in-law Charles and Liz Sapia, his 6 grandchildren, John, Matthew, Renee, Evan, Christopher, and David, and three great-grandchildren Michael, Easton, and Reagan. All were blessed to be part of Sal’s life, close to his heart, and always a stone’s throw away from a Sunday dinner or family gathering where Sal would hold court.

From the Brooklyn Navy Yard to the New York City Water Department, as a loyal and contributing member of the Teamsters Union, Sal taught his children the value of working hard and earning an honest living. The fruits of his labor included summers at the Bungalow in Woodcliff Park, cruises to the Caribbean, trips to Atlantic City, Las Vegas, and Aruba amongst others.

Sal spent the better part of his life enjoying his retirement in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, with some time spent on Ibis Avenue, most of his time spent with his friends at Camelot Gardens, and finally at Harbor Place.

While the absence of Salvatore Sapia, man will leave a void in our hearts, his Family celebrates his legacy and will continue to enjoy the memories and legacy of this great man.
