Obituary of Anthony Calvacca

Anthony Michael Calvacca, of Milford PA, died on Friday, December 6, 2019 at the age of 93.  The son of the late Angelo Michael and Marie (Bono) Calvacca, he was born on February 17, 1926 in New York, NY.

He proudly served in the United States Army during World War II and afterwards settled in West Hempstead, NY where he was a volunteer firefighter with the Lakeview Fire Department.  He was an expert automotive mechanic who throughout his career owned various shops in NY.

He later moved to Lackawaxen, PA where he worked for Shields Tires.  Anthony developed a love for the outdoors.  He became an avid hunter and fisherman.  He was an excellent marksman who enjoyed shooting at the rifle range and making his own bullets.  He shared his enthusiasm for shooting with his community by establishing a rifle range for the residents of Masthope.  Eventually, Anthony moved to Milford, PA where he became an active member (known to be the best coffee maker) of the Deer Park Reformed Church.  Anthony was highly resourceful and enjoyed educating himself on many topics.  He was respected for his broad range of knowledge and his ability to learn new technology.

Anthony was the father of six children, James Michael Calvacca (who preceded him in death); Marie Ball and her husband David Ball of Milford, PA; Lorraine Calvaccca and her husband Michael Capone of Seaford, NY; Anthony Calvacca and his wife Janet Calvacca of Smithtown, NY; Linda Calvacca of Easton, PA; and Anne Stevralia and her husband Dan Stevralia of Easton, PA, along with eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren.  He was preceded in death by his first wife Edith, his second wife Beatrice, and his longtime companion Alice.
