My deepest condolences to the Stellaccio family.Sal was a beautiful person and the best foreman I first encountered on the job. I met Sally in the summer of '92 and we had been friends since and it was always smiles and hugs when we saw each other.Sal you will be missed from The Big O Lindens finest.

Bethpage, NY - The ignorance of people on line never seizes to amaze me. Sal (my counsin) was an all around, down to earth great guy. He's been on the water since he was a kid. An avid fisherman and boater. The life of a truly good sole was tradically cut short due to an unfortunate accident. Before anyone else chimes in here with ridiculous, unwarranted comments, please think about Sal's heartbroken family and friends.

It broke my heart to hear this tragedy happened to someone, who the world will be the worse off for now that he's gone... he didn't have a mean bone in his body... God take you sal... I loved you..

My Brother was a selfless man who was there for everyone no matter what. Shame on those who could have been there for him. His spirit should be a message to all of us to embrass community. His community in Oyster Bay especially should embrass this most basic concept.....Shame on those commentors who are quick to judge. They lack the compassion to ponder the yet to unfold.....

Some people don't get the power of a helpful community. Such is the response being human

My condolences to the family. I have no doubt that he was a fine man, and part of a fine family. The thing that bothered me, when first reading it, was the wife putting the blame on the slow response to the police department. That was a very unfair statement to make, but I chalked it up to woman in grief.

May he RIP

wow, first i need to give my condolences to the family. i never met sal but i truly wish i did. i am friends with some family members and the only things i have heard about him were stories of greatness and kindness. to lose someone early is terrible. to lose someone who could have been saved is worse. from everything said about him in these comments it makes me wish i really did get a chance to meet him. so as i said, i never knew sal, but i truly wish i did.

P.S. OhWellShitHappens, why would u even continue to post here. u obviously see people don't care what u have to say while u insult a man like this after he has passed. take the clue, GET THE **** OUT OF HERE.
