Obituary for Roger V. Sala

Roger V. Sala, 85, died peacefully in his Pittsfield home on Tuesday, September 25, 2018.
He was born in North Adams on March 4, 1933, the son of Charles D. and Marceline V. (Monette) Sala. He was a graduate of Drury High School and a proud veteran of the Korean War, serving in the Navy on the submarine, USS Tusk. Roger was an active and well-known presence in the local boxing scene during the 1960s and 70s, managing six different fighters to New England Championships. He was employed throughout his life in the field of sales, including as sales manager and trainer.
Roger will be greatly missed by his wife of 60 years, Mary T. (McGovern) Sala and his four children, Roger Sala of Sutton, Marcy Sala of Amherst, Gene Sala and his wife Debbie of Adams, and Gia Young and her husband Brian of Dobbs Ferry, NY. He is also survived by his nine grandchildren, Nicholas, Max and Isabella Young; Joseph Russell; Daniel, Claudia and Natalie Sala; and Gene and Sam Sala, on whose lives he had a deeply loving and lasting impact. He was also blessed with one great grandchild, Andrik Lenski-Sala, who brought him special joy during his waning months of life.
Along with his parents, Roger was pre-deceased by his beloved sister, Dorothy Bliss and brother-in-law and close friend, Timothy McGovern. He is survived by several other sisters and brothers-in-law and nieces and nephews, with whom he shared a close bond of affection.
Roger was a man of great charm, wit, intelligence and courage who gave generously of himself in all areas of his life, especially in the realm of family, where his gifts of love and devotion showed no bounds.
