Greece: Passed away January 12, 2022. Retired NYS Supreme Court Judge and Monroe County Surrogate Court Judge. He was a graduate of Aquinas Institute ('62), St. John Fisher College ('66) and St. John's University Law School ('69).

The true measure of a man is not the treasure he has accrued not the awards he has received, but the footprints he has left in people's lives. Ed walked through life leaving positive imprints on everyone he met. He looked to help others by lifting them up through mentoring, coaching, teaching and encouraging them to reach beyond what they thought they could do. Ed achieved this through volunteering in numerous community organizations, youth sports leagues, Italian community groups, church committees and political groups. He welcomed people with his engaging personality and took joy in his daily encounters with peers, family, friends and even strangers. Everyone was equal in his eyes.

During his celebrated legal career, Ed was responsible for digitizing the case management system for the Monroe County Surrogate Courts, a change that was later adopted statewide and greatly contributed to the efficiency and transparency of the court system. Ed also served his community as a Justice of Supreme Court for the 7th Judicial District of New York, working to expedite the disposition of cases and streamline proceedings of the court. In his time outside of work, Ed acted as an active member, lecturer, and board member for numerous organizations pertaining to the legal profession, educational institutions, and Italian cultural tradition.

Ed is predeceased by his parents Thomas and Angela Calvaruso; brother Francis (Annette) Calvaruso Esq.; father-in-law John Wheeler and infant nephew Aiden Wheeler. He is survived by his loving wife, Joanne (Wheeler) Calvaruso; children Andrea Esq. and Matthew Perron, Dr. Francine Calvaruso, Todd and Stephanie Calvaruso; grandchildren, TJ, Cody and Savannah Calvaruso; mother-in-law Carole Wheeler; brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, beloved cousins and friends. A special thank you to the staff of ICU at Unity Hospital. Even while working under grueling conditions you took the time to offer compassionate care to Ed and his family. True heroes.
