Salvatore “Sam” Calabro passed away peacefully on April 25, 2021 after reaching his 94th birthday.  He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Charlotte, two brothers; four sisters; parents; Sebastiono and Rosa Calabro.  Survived by three children and their spouses: Salvatore “Sam” Calabro, Joseph Calabro (Susan), Charlotte Frostrom (John); five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; brother Tony Calabro.

Sam’s parents immigrated from Carlentini, Sicily.  Sam was one of eight children.  He loved to tell stories of his days working at the breweries, Metz and then Storz.  Eventually Sam went to work for the GSA,  from which he retired. 

He proudly served his country.  One of his many assignments while in Germany was to chauffeur the English Ambassador and his pilot.  The pilot just happened to be the future husband of the Queen of England, Prince Philip.  Sam told numerous interesting stories of his time while stationed in Germany.

Sam’s greatest joy was spending time with his family.  He will be forever missed.   Memorials are suggested to St. Francis Cabrini Catholic Church or the Josie Harper Hospice House.

    So sorry for your loss. Knew him growing up. He lived across the street from my grandparents before they passed away. Keeping your family in my prayers.
