March 22, 1954 – June 6, 2018

Sal S. Vella, 64, of Scotch Plains, formerly of Westfield, passed away on Wednesday, June 6th with his daughters by his side. Sal was a lifelong resident of Westfield and Scotch Plains, and graduated from Westfield High School in 1973.

Sal was a hardworking man who worked for over 40 years in the disposal business. He was a devoted family man who enjoyed tinkering in his garden, playing softball for many years with the Sacks Pac, bowling, hanging out at ShopRite, and striking up conversation with just about anyone he would meet. He loved cooking Sunday dinners for his family. His vibrant and boisterous personality lit up any room he entered.

Sal is survived by his three beloved daughters, Shanna Dooley and her husband Michael, Brittany, and Alexa; his loving siblings, brother Rick Vella, his nephews Ryan and son Tyler; twin sister Lorraine Zeiss and husband Bob, sister Maryann Leporino and husband Vinny; his nieces Courtney Michaels and husband Matt and daughter Olivia, and Jordan; his fiancé Lisa Vuono and her children Louis, Luke and Leanna, and his many friends. He was predeceased by his nephew Richard D’Amico and his parents.
