Salvatore Crimi, known by his friends as Sal, by his cousins as Whitey and his mother as Sammy, was born March 20th, 1925, just prior to the great depression. He lived to be 94 years young until he passed on January 23rd, 2020, just shy of his 95th birthday.
His childhood was cut short when he lost his Dad when he was just 11 years old and spent his free time shining shoes on subways to help earn money for his mom and 3 younger brothers and sister. His shoeshine box remained with him throughout the rest of his life. Our family had the shiniest shoes in the neighborhood.
His parents were Sicilian Immigrants, Maria (Buscemi) and Giuseppe Crimi. He is preceded in death by his brothers Angelo and Joseph and his sister Mary.
Sal Served in the army during WWII with honors and was in the Pacific Theater, stationed in the Philippines. He was very proud of his service to our country, and we, in turn, were proud of him.
After the Army, Sal enrolled in the NY School of Modern Photography and became a professional photographer, specializing in portrait work. As a result of his expertise, our entire extended family’s life is documented in photographs. It was common to see him at family affairs and picnics with at least two cameras hanging from his shoulders.
He met his wife, Jean Ferrauto at a dance in Brooklyn and they married in 1950. His wife Jean precedes him in death and his daughter Francine survives him.
From photography to finance, Sal was a vice president at A.J. Armstrong which merged into Security Pacific Bank. He enjoyed a long and healthy retirement of over 30 years.
Sal was a great organizer, arranging dances, block parties, trips and other affairs for friends and family and created memories that are still talked about today.
His work ethic, gentlemanly ways, kindness, sense of humor and generosity make him one of the most respected people by a multitude of friends and family. May he rest in peace, knowing he led an exemplary life and was loved and adored by so many.
