    Sal was our ‘Tool Room’ guy when I started at Raytheon in 1960. He was a good friend to all. I missed him when he retired and hold his memory in high regard. Sleep well, Sal.

  3. May he rest in peace . Sal was the best ever to help our Dept. through some early Raytheon years.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Sal was a dear friend and my boss for the beginning of my career at Raytheon. He will be missed.

  5. Rest in peace my friend. Sal was one of the kindest
    individuals to ever walk this Earth. His Family was his
    life and he took pride (deservingly so ) in every one
    of his Kids. More than a Cousin , it was a privilege to call him a friend.

  6. Dear Lecesse family I am very sorry for your loss. May Sal rest in God’s most glorious peace.
    Sincerely,
    Maureen Daly
