JOBIT: Comas, George Andrew [MC1958 RIP] on 2015-Jul-18



COMAS–George Andrew,

was surrounded by family when he passed away peacefully on July 18, 2015, the day of his 77th birthday.

Born in the Bronx to Frank Komatsulakis and Alexia Valakis, George demonstrated a keen intelligence early on at Stuyvesant High School. He graduated Manhattan College in 1958 then later served stateside in the Army during the Korean War.

George began his career as a financial advisor at White Weld, which later was purchased by Merrill Lynch in 1978. At Merrill, he was a member of the Circle of Champions, an elite group of high-producing financial advisors. George’s long and distinguished career spanned more than three decades before he retired from Merrill Lynch in 2003.

For all his professional successes, what defined George was the joyous way in which he lived life. He treated each day as a celebration, something to be enjoyed and savored until well after sunset. While his gracious nature and good humor were shared with everyone he met, it was his beloved family and friends who were most precious to him.

A passionate fitness enthusiast, George never let injury hold him back or dampen his spirit. No matter the challenges he faced, George’s motto was that he was “Livin’ the dream.” From Miami to Manhattan to Southampton, George espoused this positive view, serving as an inspiration to everyone he met. The legacy George leaves behind bears the indelible imprint of the life he lived. He taught everyone that happiness is a choice, and life should always be lived to the fullest.

He was the beloved father of Frank, Claire, Iris and John, and adored grandfather, or Geeg, to Lily, Caroline and Charlie. He is survived by his sister, Marie, niece, Christina, and nephews, Andrew, Peter and Dan. He is predeceased by his brother, Gus, and nephew, Gregory. George will be forever missed, and always loved. He indeed lived the dream.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 22, 2015 at Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel, 1076 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10028. Friends and family are welcome to pay their respects anytime between 1 and 6pm.

JOBIT: Scalia, Stephen [MC1951 RIP] on 2015-Jul-17


French Quarter preservationist Stephen Scalia dies at 91

Stephen Scalia, an advertising executive who won acclaim with his partner for restoring their French Quarter home and garden, died Wednesday (July 17) at his home. He was 91.

A New York City native who spent most of his life in New Orleans, Mr. Scalia graduated from Manhattan College. When he served in the Army during World War II, he was based at Versailles as an aide to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the supreme allied commander in Europe, and his staff, said Peter Murphy, Mr. Scalia’s nephew.

“He was able to get into Paris when it was liberated” in August 1944, Murphy said.

When Mr. Scalia moved to New Orleans after the war, Murphy said that he worked in advertising, first for Arthur Advertising and then for his own company, Scalia Advertising.

Henri Schindler, a neighbor, said that Mr. Scalia’s clients included Mike Persia’s Chevrolet dealership, for which he created a man in a fez who beat a drum and kept repeating, “Get your Chevrolet from Persia, Mike Persia Chevrolet.”

Mr. Scalia moved into an apartment in the residential compound at 618-20 Gov. Nicholls Street. In 1960, he and Milton Melton, who also had an apartment there, pooled their resources to buy both buildings and started restoring them.

They were historic. One was a Creole townhouse built in 1828 that had been the home of a sister-in-law of the politician Henry Clay. The other building, which was built in 1871, had been owned by St. Louis Cathedral and housed the Notre Dame Academy of the Sacred Heart in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

“The property was falling apart,” Mr. Scalia said in a 2004 interview in The Times-Picayune. To raise money for the renovation, they rented out apartments.

The restored house and gardens appeared in the books “The Secret Gardens of the Vieux Carré: The Historic French Quarter of New Orleans” and “New Orleans: Elegance and Decadence,” as well as in magazines such as House Beautiful and Southern Living.

In addition to using the compound as the site for the annual parties of the Vieux Carré Property Owners, Residents and Associates Inc. and the Patio Planters organization, the men invited tourists in off the streets to show off what had become regarded as an oasis.

“One of the great rewards is to show our garden to out-of-towners who can’t believe the serenity behind the walls when there’s such a cacophony of T-shirt shops,” Mr. Scalia said in the interview.

The men’s work was recognized. The Vieux Carré Commission presented an honor award for the two buildings in 1980, and in 1986, it cited Mr. Scalia and Melton for their achievement in conceiving and maintaining their garden.

In 2004, the two men received the Elizebeth T. Werlein Medal, the commission’s highest honor, which recognizes distinguished contributions toward preserving New Orleans’ oldest neighborhood.

Melton died in 2011.

Mr. Scalia was an officer of the Community Concerts Association, and he was one of the original benefactors of the National World War II Museum.

His survivors include a sister, Mary Helen Petrere of New York City.

A Mass will be said Monday at 10 a.m. in St. Louis Cathedral. Visitation will begin at 9 a.m.

Burial will be in Metairie Cemetery.

Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
