Obituary for Salvatore "Sal" Luco
The song has ended but the melody lingers on…

Sal was born in Brooklyn, New York the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Luco. He lived in Queens and Manhattan before moving to Massachusetts. Sal worked at Guarantee Bank when he came to the Worcester area. He left banking to pursue his singing career full time. In later years he worked as a courier at Fallon Clinic where he brought the joy of singing to the patients and staff until his retirement.
Sal shared his beautiful voice with thousands of people at clubs, churches, and corporate functions. He spent several summers singing at the Cape and in Maine. Sal also spent many beautiful Sunday’s singing at Bethel Lutheran Church in Auburn. He was a member of Worcester County Light Opera, EnteActors Guild and several other community theater groups.
