Celebrating 30 Years of Saving Lives...One Heartbeat at a Time!

In Memory of Albert Salem


We are deeply saddened to announce the loss of a member of the Heartbeat International family.  Mr. Albert Salem passed away unexpectedly on September 21st, 2015.


Albert was a great advocate for, and friend of, Heartbeat International.  He served continuously as a member of the Board of Directors since 2002 and took on many additional roles in service to the organization; most recently as Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Finance Committee.  Albert provided expert legal counsel, valuable strategic insight and significant fundraising support during his years with Heartbeat International.


Most importantly, Albert was a great friend and colleague.  He instilled a sense of camaraderie in the Heartbeat International organization and made many friends across the world.  His loss will be deeply felt, but we should recall with pride his contributions to the Heartbeat International mission and his unselfish service to others.


In lieu of flowers, the Salem Family requests that a donation to Heartbeat International be made in Albert's name. You can make a donation here.


Albert's memorial service will be taking place on World Heart Day, next Tuesday, September 29th. Please join the Salem Family at Christ the King Church, 821 South Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa. The memorial service will begin at 10:00AM (EDT) A reception at the Tampa Yacht and Country Club, 5320 Interbay Boulevard, will follow the service.
