Obituary

Salvador Castro Uy passed away on March 16, 2020, at his home in New York City, surrounded by his family. He was the beloved husband of Christine Brennan and the proud father of his sons, Theodore and Oliver.

Sal was born in Manhattan on March 5, 1965, to Bernardina (Castro) Uy and Antonio J. Uy, both of whom emigrated from the Philippines. Always proud of his Filipino heritage, Sal was admired for his intellect, grace and humor by his large and loving family and his wide circle of friends.

Sal graduated high school in 1983 from the United Nations International School (UNIS), received his bachelor’s degree in Politics, magna cum laude, from Princeton University in 1987, and went on to earn his Juris Doctor from Columbia University School of Law. He was the recipient of the prestigious U Thant award at UNIS, and the institution remained a vital part of his life. Sal ultimately served as the school’s Assistant Executive Director from 2012 until his passing.

Sal’s life and work embodied his strong belief in and dedication to public service. In addition to his role at UNIS, other notable leadership positions included serving as Deputy Director of the New York City Office of People with Disabilities; Assistant Commissioner for Single Adults — New York City Dept. of Homeless Services; Senior Vice President for Emergency Shelter and Hotline at Safe Horizon; and Associate Director and Chief Operating Officer of the Goddard Riverside Community Center.

Sal was passionate about human rights, justice and equality at all levels of society. He was devoted to his sons and wife, and loved nothing more than to spend time with them. In his spare time, Sal took great pleasure in preparing amazing gourmet meals for his family and friends. He was also a voracious reader and enjoyed biking.

In addition to his wife and sons, Sal is survived by his father, Antonio J. Uy (Leonila), his four siblings — to whom he was affectionately known as “Kuya” — Bernadette Uy Santangelo (Matt), Marc Uy (Susan), Antony Uy (Megan) and Kurt Eric Uy (Sarah), as well as eight nephews and nieces, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Sal was the proud godfather, or “Ninong,” to his brother Kurt Eric Uy, nephews Nicholas Santangelo and Alexander Santangelo, and niece Annabel Uy. He is also survived by his first wife, Lauren Rosenthal, who is the mother of his sons, Theodore and Oliver.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, a funeral Mass and celebration of Sal’s life will be held at a later date. Details will be forthcoming on this website.

So very sorry to hear about Sal's death. Chrissy, your husband brought that special smile to your face, which made those who have known you since Junior high feel that maybe, just maybe he deserved you. He was a man who wanted to make the world a better place. Sal will be missed, and Sal will be remembered for the love he gave. XO Janet Lefkowitz
