Falbo (Shannon); step-father of Tony Provenzano, and Maria Provenzano Syracuse (Sam); proud grandfather of Christopher Kallenbach, Karis Kallenbach, Lillian Falbo, Michael Falbo, Max Falbo, Lucy Falbo, Samantha Provenzano Gonzalez, Concetta Syracuse, Sammy Syracuse, and Danny Syracuse; brother of Louise Falbo Seigars, Marilyn Falbo, Marie Falbo Holohan, and Anna Norma Falbo; uncle of many loving nieces and nephews and too many cousins to count. Sal was an accomplished man in many areas. First and foremost, he was a loving husband, father, grandfather and patriarch of the family. He was the ultimate loving Papa. He was a successful businessman, buying a pizza parlor at the age of 20. He followed his family into the Falbo Cheese Company, a business started by his grandfather when he arrived in the US. He worked his way up to becoming President of the company. A branch of the Falbo Cheese Company was the Origena Pizza Company. Sal travelled to Japan as an ambassador pioneering pizza in that nation. After leaving that position, he went on to become a food broker specializing in baked goods and cookies. Later on in life, he carried on his love for desserts by making pies, zucchini bread, and other sweet treats for his grandchildren. He was one of two presidents of Wheaton Bowl for many years until it was sold this past spring. He was also a member of the Illinois Food Expo and former president of the Midwest Dairy Products Association. Sal had a passion for politics, and he met his wife Sherry at Republican Day in 1988. He was a committeeman and later ran for and was elected as a Milton Township Trustee, a job he truly loved. Sal was past president of the Chicago West Suburban Unico. After having a heart attack in 1980, he began running, participating in many 5K and 10K races. He then started running Marathons and continued this hobby well into his old age. He was even involved in the St. James athletic programs, coaching boys track. Sal was an avid gardener growing all his own vegetable's and starting everything from seeds in the greenhouse. He shared the fruits of his harvest with many, supplying friends and family with tomato plants and more each season. Sal was a 1958 Wheaton High School graduate, and never missed a reunion. He loved traveling. His favorite place was Mexico and as his wife, Sherry grew to adore the people and the country that he was so fond of. To his wife Sherry, Sal was the love of her life and she will forever love him, as will his family and the many friends that knew him.
