Sal grew up in Gilroy, Ca and was surely a man of many trades. He started young, working at the family business, Granata Bakery in Gilroy. He loved to bake and cook, Sal did a lot of catering when he got older. He enjoyed doing events for St. Mary's church and the Elks Lodge. Sal did not stop there, he then decided to learn electrical work in which he began his own business, Granata Electric. He also joined the I.B.E.W Local 234 where he made many lifetime friendships. It was while doing electrical work that he was diagnosed with his cancer in which he worked until it was too painful. He stopped working and began volunteering his time at St. Francis retreat. Salvatore had a very caring heart, he was patient and enjoyed teaching his trade. Sal gave all he could to so many people, by bake goods, great food, and electricity.
