Salvatore Persico, 62, passed away suddenly on June 22, 2020. Born in Springfield, MA on January 30, 1958, Sal was the son of William Persico and the late Carmela Cava. Sal graduated from Springfield Technical High School; where he then went on to proudly serve our country in the U.S Navy. For many years following his service, Sal pursued many passions, including working as a police officer in Pompano Beach, FL and owning his own salons and art studio. He later went on to work in sales with Marubeni Citizen-Cincom, Inc. In his spare time, Sal enjoyed salsa dancing, yoga with his significant other, Caroline Novelli of West Springfield, MA, working out, cooking, and most of all spending time with his family and loved ones. Sal had an infectious smile that could light up any room. At any party, you could catch Sal tearing up the dance floor.
