Obituary for Samuel J Calomino

Samuel Joseph Calomino passed away Tuesday, November 20 with his beloved wife, Susan, and his favorite niece, Charity Dorman Farnsworth, holding his hands. Sam was the second of two children born October 29, 1942 to the late Joseph F. and Madelyn Zito Calomino of Chicago, Illinois. Sam always referred to his twin sister, Gracemarie Calomino Kornhauser, as his “older” sister since she was born 13 minutes before him. Sam was a second generation American. All four of his grandparents came through Ellis Island upon their arrival to the United States. Immediate survivors include his wife of almost 32 years, Susan Metcalf Calomino, his sister and brother-in-law, Gracemarie and Jeff Kornhauser of Palm Beach Garden, Florida, his beloved aunt, Rosemary Zito Galluzo, of Chicago, and cousins Fred Galluzo (Sharon Rice) of Elmhurst, Roseann Costa (John) of Schiller Park, and Nicholas D’Alessandro (Edwinna) of Franklin Park. Other survivors include multiple sisters- and brothers-in-law in Beckville, Texas, five nieces, two nephews, and several great-nieces and great-nephews. In addition, Sam is survived by a special group of other diehard Notre Dame football fans, including Guy Allegretto of Amherst, New York, Ken Bastuga of Downers Grove, Jim Corpora of White Hall, Pennsylvania, Ken and Angela Papineau of Two Rivers, Wisconsin, Mark Scannell of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Peter Schivarelli of Chicago. Sam was a 1960 graduate of Fenwick High School in Oak Park, Illinois, and earned his BBA from Notre Dame University in 1964 and his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Loyola University in 1967. He served in the Army after graduation from law school. Prior to his retirement, Sam worked in various tax-related positions with Arthur Anderson, American Hospital Supply, GATX, and Jefferson Wells. In the past ten years, Sam required a higher level of care as the result of Parkinson’s disease. He had a number of wonderful caregivers, including Vale Baldassari, Duane (Bobby) Dizon, and Arnie Austria. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the care of JourneyCare Hospice and his nurse, Alice, for the last 16 months as well.
