Salvatore Morando

January 13, 1951 ~ August 4, 2023 (age 72) 72 Years Old


Salvatore Morando, a lifelong resident of Malden, passed away on August 4th, 2023.  Sal was born in Malden in 1951, the son of James and Alma Morando.  He was raised and educated in Malden, graduating from Malden High School with the Class of 1969.  He furthered his education by taking classes at Mass Bay Community College and Salem State College.  Sal had a career in, as well as managed, printing and bookbinding for several decades, and later went on to pursue a career in healthcare.  He worked at Malden Hospital first as a Financial Counselor, prior to moving into Medical Records management.  He later worked at Lawrence Memorial Hospital as the Manager of Patient Registration.  Sal worked at Hallmark Health for 30 years until his retirement.  After “retiring”, he expanded his skills by working jobs that gave him joy; substitute teaching in the Malden Public Schools, ushering at the Schubert, eventually returning to work per diem for medical offices within the Hallmark/Tufts community.


Salvatore married his high school sweetheart Beverly Babcock in May of 1972 in the Maplewood Baptist Church in Malden.  The two settled down in Malden to raise their family.  Sal and Bev shared 51 years of marriage together and created a life admired by many.  Fueled by their spiritual nature and commitment to community, Sal and Bev became longtime dedicated members of the First Lutheran Church of Malden.  Sal’s great love of music and singing inspired his proud participation within the Reading Community Singers and the Saengerfest Men’s Choir.


He is survived by his wife, Beverly M. (Babcock) Morando, his daughters Amy Morando Munro and her husband Jeff, April Daly and her husband Todd (both of Malden), his siblings Catherine Maher and husband Michael of Wilmington, James Morando II and wife Jacqueline of Wenham, his grandchildren Anthony, Giovanna, Abigail, and Amelia, and great-grandfather to Anthony Jr.  Sal will be fondly remembered by several nieces, nephews, and special friends.  


Sal was the type of man that even if you hadn’t talked in twenty years, he’d treat you like his closest friend.  As a leader of tradition, he’d insist on participation in “mandatory family fun,” even in the strangest of circumstances.  Annually, he and his family would exchange gratitudes over a box of Bell’s Seasoning.  He and Beverly would spend time together watching movies;  they had many for each season, especially Hallmark holiday movies at Christmas or “On Golden Pond” to close out the summer. This too, was passed down to his daughters, who made these nights even more special by turning them into theme nights.  At Halloween, he and his grandchildren would scour Halloween stores for the perfect new addition to our “House of Horrors”.  Most of all, he and the people that he met along the way created the type of memories that would have an everlasting impact.  To know Sal was to love him, and love him we did.  


If you know Sal, you know a tight hug, a hot cup of coffee, an Italian feast, a stained white t-shirt (v-neck, of course), an open door, and invaluable love.  Our hearts break in the midst of the chaos, the world turns upside down, and nothing feels normal.  The only constant is the feeling that Sal’s love is ever-present.  If love had a name, it would be Salvatore.  Sal’s passing is a tremendous loss to so many, but the way that this man loved openly and proudly, will be forever cherished by all.  His spirit is a permanent part of everyone that has ever crossed his path, and we now live in his light.  


A service to celebrate Sal’s life will be held at the Weir-MacCuish Funeral Home, 144 Salem St Malden on Saturday, August 12 at 10:00 AM.  Visitation will be held at the funeral home on Friday, August 11, from 4 – 8 PM.
