Richard J. Calo, 77 years old, of Lady Lake FL passed away peacefully on May
26th, 2020, after a brief period of declining health. He was predeceased by his
wife of 48 years, Carol (Brown) Calo, and leaves behind his daughter and sonin-
law, Amy and Hayden Beckman, Jr. of Merrimack NH.
Richard (Dick, as most people knew him) was born and grew up in Woonsocket
RI. His family moved to Manchester, NH where he attended West Highschool
and later joined the Army Reserves. He worked for the phone company for a few
years before starting a career as a Manchester police officer, detective and
sergeant for 21 years. After retiring from the force in 1987, he served as a
Hillsborough County Sheriff for 10 years.
With the new century came a new chapter in Dick’s life. He moved to South
Carolina and enjoyed his retirement where he got a part time gig at a marina and
became well known in the community as “Dick on the dock”. He reveled in the
slower pace of the south, RV-ing, riding his Harley and spending time with his
wife and friends there, but nothing compared to the memories and bonds he
shared with his brothers in blue. He will be missed dearly.
A gathering to celebrate Richard’s life will be planned at a later date.

    Dick the super fly will always be part of my memory. Driving by his house it always brings back memories. Dick was always here to help the young officers and Saint Peter will give him a big plus for that. Rest in peace ..... Pepsi

    Amy, your Dad was a great neighbor, friend and co-worker. He'll is missed by so many. I think of you all every time I drive by 832. My it comfort you to know that he is as peace and reunited with your Mom, as the two of them watch down on you with smiles; justly proud of their greatest accomplishment.

    To a good friend and Brother in Blue. He took care of me when I was new, all he asked was that I didn't smoke a cigar in his cruiser. A great person and friend. Rest in Peace Dick!

    Dick was a great sergeant. And tire salesman! We still recall him with smiles every time we drive by his old house and shop. It sounds like he had a great retirement, too. May he rest in peace.

    Many times Dick would come into Ted Herbert's Music Mart and we would talk. As he got to know me we would see each other on the street usually when I was speeding or imbibing to much. First words were "Where you going Larry" My answer was always "Home Dick" He was always fair and gave you a break if you deserved one.
    I have thought and spoke of him many times in the last 50 plus years with the respect he deserved.
    He was one in a million.
