Albert A. Calovini, 93, of St. Clairsville, OH, formerly of Lafferty, OH died Monday, June 4, 2018 at East Ohio Regional Hospital, Martins Ferry, OH. He was born April 10, 1925 in Claridge, PA a son of the late John N. and Lena C. Cavada Calovini.
Albert and his wife Magdaline were the retired Owner/Operators of the former Star Nursing Home in Morristown, OH , he owned Al’s TV & Radio Repair Service, working for C.A. House and he was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Wolfhurst, OH, a member of American Legion Post 159 of St. Clairsville and a U.S. Navy Veteran of WW II serving in the Pacific Theater as a Seabee Construction 9 Battalion.
Albert built his own home and converted a hotel into a nursing home out of a desire to provide quality care for 10 years he and his wife took excellent care of both their employees and residents. He enjoyed golfing and fishing with his two grandsons and they enjoyed learning from him. Winters in Florida afforded him an opportunity to stay active year around. There he enjoyed the camaraderie of the retirement community. He enjoyed playing pool and often won at pool tournaments. Both in Florida and Ohio, his greatest pleasure was helping family, neighbors and friends with whatever needed to be fixed. He never saw anything as impossible and his positive attitude was infectious. He was friendly and kind to all and never knew a stranger. We will miss his smile, his kindness, and energetic spirit. Since his wife’s death, his greatest desire has been to be reunited with her.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his loving wife of 69 years, Magdaline K. Calovini in April 16, 2017; a brother, Ernest Calovini.
