Phillip A. Catanzaro

Phillip Catanzaro died April 26 of COVID-19. After struggling with it for a month, he thought he was doing better and was looking forward to coming home to his wife of 48 years. Instead he went home to God. Phillip was 75 years old.

Catanzaro served in the Army Reserves, worked in the family business (St. Louis Banana & Tomato Co.), and operated the original Chesterfield License Bureau.

His family wants to thank the healthcare workers who cared so well for Phillip in his last days and they request that “In lieu of flowers, we request that you do everything you can to fight this horrific COVID virus.”
