Salvatore “Sal” DiSchino
Retiree of Cambridge Electric Light
Salvatore “Sal” DiSchino of Everett passed away peacefully on February 4 at the age of 81.
Born in Gaeta, Italy, Sal was the son of the late Antonio and Anna (Capobianco) DiSchino. As the oldest of four, Sal came to the United States when he was sixteen. His father came just before him and they both worked and saved for his mother and three siblings to join them several years later. The entire family settled in Somerville.
Some of his first jobs included washing dishes at Logan Airport and baking bread at Roma Bakery in Somerville. He “hit it big” when he landed a job as a machinist at Cambridge Electric Light Company where he worked until his retirement.
In his younger days, Sal loved the beach. Revere Beach and Beachmont were his go-to’s in the summer months where he’d usually come home with several buckets full of mussels for his family to enjoy!
More recently, his pastimes had shifted to hanging out at the Square One Mall in Saugus or at the Market Basket in Chelsea, enjoying coffee with his buddies or working on his sudoku puzzles. Many of his friends were immigrants themselves and they enjoyed their retirement talking about everything from their immigrant experiences to cars, politics, current events- whatever!
Sal was a renaissance man who could engage in conversation on many different topics.
Sal was the beloved husband of Rachel M. (DelPapa) DiSchino, devoted father of Diana Luongo and her husband, Anthony of Wilmington, Cristina Ventolieri and her husband, Donald of Somerville, loving “Papa” to Daniel and Lorianna Luongo, loving brother to Cosmo DiSchino of Somerville, Maria Goss of Londonderry, NH and Rosa Rappoli of Tewksbury. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews whom he adored.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend Salvatore’s visiting hours in the Cafasso & Sons Funeral Home, 65 Clark St. (Corner of Main St.) Everett, Friday, February 10 from 4 to 8 p.m. His funeral will be from the funeral home on Saturday at 9 a.m. followed by a Funeral Mass in the Immaculate Conception Church, 487 Broadway, Everett, at 10 a.m. Services will conclude with entombment with U.S. Army Military Honors at the Holy Cross “Chapel Hill” Mausoleum, Malden.
