Tribute

During these very trying times we at Donohue Cecere Funeral Home want to assure you that we have taken every precaution to provide a safe environment for you and your loved ones. Our location is cleaned and sanitized daily and we continue to follow best practices for social distancing and safety.
In accordance with Executive Order 202.17 (which requires any individual over age two, and able to medically tolerate a face-covering, be required to cover their nose and mouth with a mask or cloth face-covering when in a public place) we are required to follow this mandate or risk being shut down; therefore, all individuals entering our funeral home will be asked to wear a face mask or cloth face covering.
As of the latest update we are able to offer limited visitation periods in the funeral home for family and friends up to 25 people per session. Please be mindful when visiting during these sessions to limit the amount of time spent at the funeral home. This will give the opportunity for other family and friends to visit.

Enrico was born in Brooklyn, one of nine children. He volunteered to serve his country during the Korean War and served his family ever since.  He is survived by his brother, Pete, his sister, Stephanie and an abundance of nieces and nephews, who affectionately refer to him as Uncle Babe. His interests were crossword puzzles, horse racing, playing cards, and spending time with family. His favorite place in the world was the dinner table, with us. His seat at the table will never be filled.

To send sympathy gifts to the family or plant a tree in memory of Enrico Calia, please visit our tribute store.
