WATERFORD David A. Catallo, 94, of Robin Lane died Tuesday October 15, 2019 at Samaritan Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Waterford he was a lifelong resident and son of the late Orazio and Loretta Villa Catallo. He was a graduate of Waterford High School.

Dave was employed by the US Postal Service for 35 years and served as Waterford Postmaster from 1972 until his retirement in 1981. He was a veteran of the US Navy serving as a corpsman during WW II and was wounded on Omaha Beach on D-Day June 6, 1944. He is the proud recipient of the Purple Heart, The Presidential Unit Citation, the Bronze Star, the Croix de Guerre Medal and the Legion of Honour Medal given by the French Government, the WW II Victory medal and the American Campaign medal. He and three of his brothers, Anthony, Merico and Feody, served in the US Armed Forces at the same time during WW II.

He is an inactive member of the Kavanaugh Hook and Ladder Co. and, while active, held the office of Treasurer there for forty-one consecutive years. In 2010 he was honored by the fire company with a plaque commemorating his 65 years of service. He is a lifetime member and former Treasurer of the Waterford Knights of Columbus, a member of the Waterford Bocce League, and had served as League President and Team Captain. He is also a member of the Waterford Golf League.

Survivors include his devoted wife Gloria Farabegoli Catallo. The couple celebrated their 69th anniversary on September 10, 2019. He is the loving father of Lorry Glogowski (Mark) of Clifton Park and Larry Catallo (Joanne) of Waterford. He is the brother of Wally Catallo of Waterford, the late Anthony Catallo, Elizabeth LaFond, Lena Decker, Merico, Guerino, and Edward Catallo and Ann Gabriel. He is the brother in law of Ruby Catallo and Dom Gabriel of Waterford and Edward Farabegoli of Middleburg, FL and is the proud grandfather of Christen and Scott Glogowski. Several nieces and nephews also survive.

Mrs Catallo and family,
I am sad to hear of the passing of Mr Catallo. He was always a character when I saw him at his dentist office or out and about.
He always made me smile. I hope all of the fond memories will help you through this difficult time. I will be out of town during the services but know that I am thinking of you all.
