After graduating Sal enlisted in the Navy as a Merchant Marine and was honorably discharged in 1945. On April 20, 1950 Sal married Jeanne Ballard in Stevens Point. He worked as a printer for Weber Tackle Company and retired as a custodian at the Portage County Courthouse. Sal also enjoyed fishing, gardening and woodworking.
He is survived by his son: John (Sue) Pliska, 5 daughters: Mary Ellen (Curt) Conrad, Pat (John) Kedrowski, Jeanne (Bill) Young, Carol (Bob) Becker, and Susan (John) Basill. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
