Earl Elmer Lamica

Nursing Home.

Earl grew up and went to school in Malone, NY, before enlisting in 1945.  He served his country in the US Army until he was discharged in 1948.  He reenlisted in 1949 in the US Air Force, was deployed to Japan, and continued his service for another three years during the Korean Conflict.

Earl worked in several fields throughout his life, including the New York Central Railroad Extra Gang, raising and floating tracks ... Jefferson Ward (a division of Montgomery Ward) in Virginia ... 20 years with JM Fields department stores ... and started his own business, Lamica Janitorial Co., right here in Saratoga Springs.

Earl loved country music, he loved guitar and he definitely loved the Red Sox ... but Earl loved his family above all else.  Loving father of three sons, grandfather of six, uncle and great grandfather to a large family, and devoted husband of Marie ... Earl was very loved and will be much missed.

Earl is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Marie Theresa Chevalier Lamica; son, Alan Lamica, Sr.; grandson, Alan Lamica, Jr.; sister, Margaret; and brothers, Lester, Robert, Emory, Bernard, Carlton and Stanley.
