Having celebrated his 36th birthday on September 8, “Big Sal” lived in Revere for most of his life, until moving to Salem 10 years ago. He was a member of the graduating Class of 2000 of Northeast Vocational High School of Wakefield. In 2010, he became the proprietor and Master Barber at Big Sal’s Superior Barber Shop of Salem. A gentleman of large stature, he also owned a wonderfully large personalty that endeared him to any and all who he came in contact with. Sal would want to be remembered as the very best Dad and all around family man. He held family as being supreme and cherished his role as Husband, Dad, Son, Brother, Nephew, Grandson, Uncle and Cousin, above all else. No commentary would be complete, not to mention the unique place in his heart, that he held his large extended family of friends. He was also a proud member of the Liberty Masonic Lodge of Masons, A.F. & A.M. of Beverly.
He was the beloved husband of 10 years, to Michelle J. (Babineau) Castiello and the adored father of Suzahna G., Salvatore A. Jr. and Angelo J. Castiello, all of Salem; cherished son of Thomas J. and Gina M. (Salamone) Castiello; and the devoted brother of Christina M. Castiello and Thomas J. Castiello, Jr. and his companion, Kaitlyn Mahoney, all of Revere. He was the proud grandson of Eleanora “Nora” (Stagno) Salamone of Revere and the late Salvatore M.”Sal” Salamone and the late Alexander and Josephine R. (Sciliano) Castiello. He was the dear son-in-law of Guy and Theresa Babineau of Salem; and is also lovingly survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
As a testimonial to Sal's devotion and love of his children, the family would rather, in lieu of flowers, please remember him with to gift to an Educational Fund to honor the educational pursuits of his three children. Checks are to be made to Gina M. Castiello, 46 Nell Rd., Revere, MA 02151. Please visit www.vertuccioandsmith.com.
