Emilio Cammalleri

Emilio Cammalleri of Haworth passed away on May 9, 2021. Beloved husband of Claudette Cammalleri. Loving father of Rosaria Parisi and her husband Mike, Angela Sluyter and her husband Scott, Francesca Glass and her husband Anthony, Roberto “Tino” Cammalleri and his wife Jennifer, Maria Colon and her husband Nelson, and Antonio “Nino” Cammalleri and his wife Elsa. Dear brother of Aldo and the late Renato Cammalleri. Cherished grandfather of Vincent, Sara, Nicholas, Ariana, Zachary, Alexa, Julia, Max, Roberto, Gabriella, Sofia, Olivia, Emma, Isabella, Lily, Mia, Matteo, and Enzo and great grandfather of Emilia, Sarah, and Lucy. Emilio came to the United States from Sicily as a young man. After meeting the LOVE OF HIS LIFE by offering her a Lifesaver candy at the Oritani movie theater in Hackensack one winter night in 1959, he decided to start a new life with Claudette in this country. Emilio was a lifelong entrepreneur, business owner, realtor, soccer coach and referee. He was known by many in the community as the owner and operator of Emilio’s Hair Studio in Bergenfield. However, his greatest legacy was being the patriarch of a beautiful family built on the foundation of the unwavering love, dedication and hard work that Emilio embodied. He often spoke of his many “Treasures” - his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. All that knew him experienced his larger than life personality, and kindness in some way. Visiting hours at Riewerts Memorial Home, 187 So. Washington Ave., Bergenfield on Wednesday 3-5 and 7-9 PM. Funeral service at the funeral home on Wednesday at 8:00PM. Cremation will be private.

My deepest sympathies go out to the Cammelleri family and their families. I remember Emilio fondly. I worked for him in his Salon briefly but I have the best memories of working for him. He was a kind and generous man and I remember he liked to sing? My prayers go out to Mrs Cammalleri, Rosaria, Angela, Francesca all of which I have such great memories of, and the rest of the family. God bless you all.

My sincerest condolences to the family. Emilio was my barber from my very first haircut, and was one of my Grandfathers closest friends. I remember always talking about soccer, bocce, and family every time I was there. His smile and booming hey big guy! Would light up the room.

Riposa in pace, Emilio.

I was a long time customer of Emilio at his shop in Bergenfield (and in his garage last summer/fall). He started to cut my hair as a young man. Always good conversation and always talked fondly of his family. It was really nice being able to take my son their for haircuts together. He would sit him on the horse named Bud and afterward Emilio would let him take a handful of lollipops! Emilio was one of a kind. We will miss him. Condolences to all of his family.

My fondest memories of Emilio Cammalleri were on the soccer field. His passion for the game could be heard in his voice and his caring instruction of Tino and Tino's teammates. He was the father / grandfather / great grandfather to many in his family and his paternal instincts translated to "the beautiful game".

With deepest sympathy,
