He was a 1967 graduate of Youngstown State University (summa cum laude).  He was a well known entrepreneur throughout his life.  He made his mark with the McDonalds Corporation in the 1970s as a tri-state area licensing director.

Sal was a beloved husband, father, uncle, grandfather and friend willing to help anyone in a moments notice.  He was a fixture in the Roxbury Twp athletic programs as a coach and “enthusiastic” fan of all sports. You could always catch Sal in his lawn chair along the sidelines.  He cherished the many friends he made in his neighborhood.  The neighborhood dogs could count on him for a treat anytime of the day.

He is survived by his wife Brenda J (Johnson) DelPreore of 48 years, his sons Christopher (and Jennie) DelPreore of Independence Township, and Matthew (and Stacey) DelPreore of Ramsey.
