Memories Timeline


  1. Sal and my dad (Frank)met at work, and formed a friendship that lasted many years. They enjoyed their weekly Wednesday morning, senior MCDonald coffees, and treats that Jamie prepared for them. Sal and Dad enjoyed going to the Nats games with my sister Lin, and brother Bill. I loved going to MGM and lunch monthly with Sal and Jamie, and our trips to Ocean City together in the winters.
    The Lancaster family is very saddened by your Dad’s passing, but know he’s up in Heaven having coffee and your Mom’s delicious treats with your mom and our dad!

  2. Our Deepest Sympathy to our dear neighbors & friends Barb & Dan Snow, their children, grandchildren, brother, & sisters & their families over the loss of such an important & loving man. God Bless you all. Love Claudia & Mike Lynch

    • I did not know Mr. DiMassimo but I worked with his daughter Paula and I want to send my deepest sympathy and love to the family. Paula spoke highly of her Dad and I knew he was a well respected husband and father. may God’s love,peace and grace comfort you all at this time of sorrow.

  3. My fondest memory of Sal was working with him at Waltonwood. He was afraid of swimming in our therapeutic pool and he would hold tightly onto my hands while we walked around the perimeter of the pool. After months of pool walking, I tried to appeal to his common sense by asking him how tall he was and pointed at the pool wall which indicated on a sign that the pool was only four feet at the deepest. I then proceeded to ask him, if he felt he could drown in this shallow end. His eyes got really big and he said, “he thinks he could.” I assured him that I would not let him drown. He pulled my hand out if the water and kissed my hand. Always the gentleman!❤️

  4. I have such great memories of growing up across the street from the DiMassimo family on Swift Run Street. Both Mr. and Mrs. DiMassimo were lovely people. Sending my sympathy to Christy, Cathy, Paula, Debbie, Gina, Ricky, Teresa, Barbara & Diane. -Peggy Stanton Guryan
