Luigi C. Calandriello '72 '76

Luigi Calandriello, 61, of Oakwood, who was known for living life to the fullest, died Friday in Mount Sinai Hospital, Manhattan.

Born in Salerno, Italy, Mr. Calandriello was brought to the United States as a child and settled in Brooklyn. He moved to Oakwood in 1976.

A graduate of Xaverian High School in Brooklyn, Mr. Calandriello earned a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering and a master's degree in project management from Polytechnic Institute of New York in Brooklyn.

He worked as a project manager for Con Edison and then for Munoz Engineering.

Mr. Calandriello enjoyed visiting Atlantic City, playing cards with friends and going to movies. He was a fan of the New York Yankees and was a member of the Father John C. Drumgoole Council, Knights of Columbus.

Tina Marciano said her father "lived life to the fullest" and shared this Oscar Wilde quote to express that idea: "To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist. That is all."
