John Sally

Alumni Remembrance

It is with much sadness that I am sending this. John was a wonderful friend to Mike & I during our JFK years. We had so much fun and the stories we could tell about this man could fill a book. Unfortunately I hadn't noticed that his e-mails of jokes and stories had stopped so didn't think to inquire. Consequently I do not know what type of cancer he was battling or for how long, I am planning on calling his wife in a few days and if I have more info I will... pass it on. Sometimes our lives get in the way and we do not stay in contact with dear friends the way we should. Then something like this happens and you end up kicking yourself saying "Why didn't I just make a phone call to check in?" Opportunity lost . Just know John that we love you, loved the wonderful years we spent with you and will never forget you and when we do think of you it will always be with a big smile on our face, remembering that wonderful smile and laugh of yours.
Sally, John V.Greece: Passed Sunday, May 10, 2015 at 2:20 PM after a heroic battle with cancer. He is survived by Rita, his devoted wife of 25 years, daughter Jennifer (Jim Malley) Sally, son Vincent (Maria Mammano) Sally, step-daughter Kelly (Rick) Hobbins, step-son Tony (Lida Moore) Camarata, and 5 adored grandsons Jude Malley, Dean Sally and Adam, Mark and Sean Hobbins, brother Robert (Jill) Sally, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers and sisters-in-law and many friends. Also, his devoted business associate and office manager Vanza McEntee.John was a graduate of Manlius Military Academy and received his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Kennedy College in Nebraska. He taught briefly before finding his niche in the insurance industry which led to ownership of the John V. Sally Agency. John loved to travel, cook, entertain and golf. He was a 17 year member of Ridgemont Country Club which was his second home. A testament to his beautiful heart was how he loved all 4 children as his own, and that love was returned. Beautiful man, heart and soul. 
 

Thank you Bucky
