In memory of Salvatore Marchese

Created by Family Of Salvatore Marchese

Salvatore Marchese

I was blessed with two beautiful children, Blake who is 30 years old and Sal, who would have been 27 in April. Sal was an amazing, son, brother and father – as my mother always said, “Sal was truly an old soul.” Sal had a heart of Gold. My son, like so many other children struggled with the terrible disease of addiction. We tragically lost Sal due to an accidental fatal overdose. Sal left behind a son, who will be 3-years-old on March 16, 2012. Our lives have forever changedsince the loss of Sal as he was a truly wonderfulperson. I will forever be thankful that I have the honor of calling Sal my son. He will forever be loved and missed.

This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.
