  The Passing of Former Justinian Society Chancellor, Carl J. Melone, Esquire - a Letter from Vice Chancellor Gina Rubel
01-07-2008

Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Justinian Society Board, It is with sadness that I inform you of the passing of Carl J. Melone, Esq. who was one of our organization’s early Chancellor’s and a business partner to my grandfather, The Hon. Edward W. Furia. I have included Mr. Melone’s obituary below for your reference. Please keep his family in your Vice Chancellor, The Justinian Society Carl J Melone, age 92 of Hershey’s Mill, West Chester andcourt-appointed former US Attorney in Philadelphia for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania died of natural causes on January 4, 2008. Mr. Melone was the chief federal prosecutor for Southeastern Pennsylvania for seven months in 1972. The appointment capped two periods of service as an Assistant US Attorney from November 1960 to June 1962 and from April 1968 until he retired from that office in 1973. After service during WW II as a Captain in the 111th Infantry Regiment, 28th Division of the PA National Guard, he attended and graduated from Temple University School of Law in 1949, where he also earned a BA in Education in 1935.  Thereafter he was an attorney with the US Department of Labor and the US Department of Justice, including Trial Attorney with the Antitrust Division in Philadelphia.  While in private law practice, he was active in the Philadelphia Bar Association and a number of its committees.  He was particularly proud of his contributions to the Judiciary Committee and the Committee of Censors.  Early in his career he was elected Chancellor of the Justinian Society of Philadelphia, an organization of lawyers of Italian heritage.

His love and respect for the law and its trial practice never diminished, according to his family.  Even after retirement from US government service, he was appointed by governor Shapp as District Justice in Delaware County and was twice elected to that judicial office.

His other professional interest was the savings and loan and banking business.  He served variously as an officer, director and member of the Board of Trustees of United Savings Bank and its predecessors, whose main office is in South Philadelphia.

During his leisure time he enjoyed his collection of classical music, the theatre, and civic affairs including tenure as President of the Rotary Club of Broomall and a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 4129 becoming a 4th degree Knight. He had a passion to keep fit with a regime of walking, hiking and other physical exercise as well as social activities and travel.

Mr. Melone is survived by two daughters, Ann McNally of West Chester PA and Mary Jo Tutterow of Tampa, FL, his daughter-in-law Barbara Melone of Fenwick, Delaware, four grandchildren and a companion Eva DiAddezzio, Bryn Mawr.  His son Carl and wife Claire predeceased him.

Relatives and friends are invited to his Funeral Mass 10:00 AM Saturday January 12, 2007 at St. Maximilian Kolbe Church 15 E. Pleasant Grove Road West Chester.  Visitation 9-10 am Saturday at the Church.  Interment will be at Holy Cross Cemetery, Yeadon PA. 

In lieu of flower, donations may be made in his name to Neighborhood Hospice Services, 400 East Marshall Street, West Chester, PA  19380, Chester County Association for the Blind, 71 S First Avenue, Coatesville, PA, 19320 or the Women’s Resource Center, 113 W Wayne Avenue, Wayne, PA  19087.
