Joseph Jovite Salvas directed his last plays in 1947. He died in 1970 at the age of 75, survived by his wife, four daughters, and one son. His obituary noted his insurance and real estate business, but made no mention of his extensive theater career. Salvas should be remembered for the forty years of entertainment he brought to life in Biddeford and for the lasting influence he had on the community’s Franco-American culture.
