Salvatore “Sal” Pulselli

Of Waltham passed away unexpectedly at the age of 82 on Friday, February 26, 2021 at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington, MA. He was born on June 11, 1938 in Aragona, Italy, the beloved son of the late Calogero and Maria (Caveleri) Pulselli. Sal was raised in Sicily and moved with his family to northern France to seek work after the Second World War. In 1963, he married his beautiful wife Domenica (Alfeo), also from Aragona. In 1966, he immigrated to the United States and settled in Waltham, MA, joining his wife and first child. There, Sal and Domenica expanded their beautiful family to what it is today. For 43 years, Sal worked as a union welder for the Davidson Fan Company / Lytron Corporation.

Known to them as Papa, Nonno, Zio Toto, and of course Sal, he will always be remembered for his devotion to and love for his family. Indeed, his greatest pleasure was spending time with his wife, family, and friends on numerous holidays, birthdays, and reunions. Above all else, he loved to see and hear from his twelve grandchildren; even in his later years he was youthful and playful with them. He always had a chuckle to share and twinkle in his eye. Leading by example, he taught others to be as happy as he was.

In the United States, Sal stayed true to his Italian heritage: he loved to cook, he looked forward to making and drinking his homemade wine every year, and he spent the warm summer days tending to his much-beloved vegetable and flower garden. Over the years, he kept in touch with his family in Italy and France through phone calls and by making numerous trips overseas to visit. Sal was a devoted fan of Boston sports teams, especially the Celtics, and he also closely followed European soccer.

Sal was predeceased by his beloved wife Domenica (Alfeo) Pulselli in 1997, his brothers Vincenzo and Angelo Pulselli, and his step-mother Giuseppina Rizzo. He is survived by many relatives: his devoted wife of 7 years, Angela (Ternek) Pulselli; his loving children Calogero "Charles" Pulselli and his wife Donna (DiLuca) of Pembroke, Giuseppe "Joseph" Pulselli and his wife Lidia (Tramontozzi) of Franklin, Maria (Pulselli) Mariona and her husband Gerard of Ashland, and Vincenzo "Vincent" Pulselli and his wife Christina (Giordano) of Waltham; his cherished grandchildren Marco, Jesse, Christian, Mia, Juliana, Nicholas "Nico", Alexander, Sophia, Isabella, Ava, Emilia and Lucas; his dear siblings Giuseppe Pulselli and Santina Masullo, both of France; and his step-brothers Filippo, Carmelo, and Gianni, all of Italy. In addition, he is survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family members, both here in the United States as well as in France, Italy, and Belgium. Lastly, he is survived by Angela’s family whom he cared for dearly.

For the safety of those we love and care about during this difficult time, those who wish to pay their respects to Salvatore and his family can do so in accordance with CDC, federal, state, and local guidelines at the Brasco & Sons Memorial, 773 Moody Street, Waltham, MA, on Wednesday, March 3 from 4-8 pm. We ask that friends please be mindful and respectful of the current limitations on social gatherings. For those who wish to pay their final respects but are unable to attend, please be sure to sign the guestbook at
