Daniel Di Salvo, 93, formerly of New Albany, Indiana, died peacefully at his home in Louisville on Tuesday, November 22, 2022. He was a charter member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, where his funeral mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, November 28, 2022. Visitation will take place from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 27, 2022, at Newcomer Funeral Home (3309 Ballard Lane, New Albany).
He is survived by his children, Debbie (Donnie), Donna, David (Mary Ann), Denise (David), Danny (Katyann), and Darin (Julie); grandchildren, Teresa (Charles), Justin, Emily (Josiah), Steven, Andrew, Ann Marie, David (Zoie), Joseph (Olivia), Brittany, Shannon (Josh), Zachary, Rachel, Leah, Mason, and Taylor; and great-grandchildren, Gannon, Collin, Ben, Norah, Iver, Finley, Marcus, Charlotte, and Lincoln, with one more on the way.
Dan worked until he was 85 years old in the transportation industry. He stopped working when his kidneys began to fail him. Dan was a dialysis patient for seven years and ten months. He was very appreciative of the good care that he received from the many doctors, nurses, and techs that kept him healthy.
He enjoyed working out at the gym with the many other "Gym Rats" that he met along with way. You may have heard Dan ask, "Can you do a push up?" His advice if you said, "No," would be to try one. His advice if you said, "Yes," would be to try to do one more rep than you currently did. He inspired many to do more than they thought they could.
Contributions in Dan's memory may be made to Sticks and Stones Ministry (8842 Powderhorn Way, Indianapolis, IN 46256) or to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church.
