Obituary

It is with great sadness that the family of Alfred F. Amicarelli of North Port, FL announces his passing on January 4th, 2019. Alfred was born on June 19th, 1930 in Youngstown, OH to parents Louis and Teresa Amicarelli and had four siblings. Alfred leaves behind his wife Pamela of North Port, FL; sons, Gary of Leesburg, FL, and Daniel of North Port, FL; daughters, Jaye Baldwin (Steve) of Michigan and Julie Tryon of North Port, FL; grandchildren, Vicki Baldwin and Christopher Baldwin of Michigan and Andrew Tryon and Justine Tryon of North Port, FL.

Alfred joined the U.S. Air Force in 1951, entering basic training at Lackland AFB, TX, and faithfully and honorably served his country with distinction through several conflicts and many overseas tours of duty. He pioneered usage of several advanced weapons munitions systems on bomber and fighter aircraft. He attained the senior rank of MSgt (Master Sergeant, E-7) Before retiring from Seymour Johnson AFB, NC in 1971 following 20 years of service.

Alfred then pursued a successful 18-year second career as an Ohio Driver’s License Examiner in the town of Greenville, OH; where he was well known to most of the high school students and many of the town’s citizens of that era. During this time, Alfred helped countless young and old people around Greenville through many of the local charitable civic service organizations and the local YMCA.

After his second retirement and completing his lifelong dream move to Florida in 1993, Alfred remained active in the community through the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Elks Club, and the British-American Club, among others. He will be missed by many for his selfless dedication and continual hand to old friends, new friends, and his community.

Greater than his impressive careers and service was Alfred’s highly devoted 64 year model marriage to his loving wife and his deeply loving care and compassion for his children, grandchildren, and many others with whom he came into contact. “The Al” will always be remembered as a kind and generous man of in-depth conversations, a quick wit, and even a few friendly and highly humorous pranks.

A family and friends service is scheduled for Alfred at San Pedro Church in North Port, FL on Friday, January 18, 2019 at 10:00AM followed by light refreshments at Olde World Restaurant, and then final internment with military honors at Sarasota National Cemetery at 3:00PM. Flowers can be sent to Pamela or a donation can be made to the Greenville, Ohio Chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

My favorite memory of Mr. Amicarelli is the day I brought over an Apple Bar platter for Pam to deliver the next day to the Garden Club. It was still warm and Mr. Amicarelli wanted one, so I gave him one. He then wanted to take more, I told him to help himself but fix the platter so Pam would not know he ate so many. It is one of my favorite memories.
