Carl A. Damico

General services official

A Mass of Christian burial for Carl A. Damico, the assistant secretary of general services who supervised the construction, maintenance and operation of state-owned buildings, will be offered at 11 a.m. today at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church in Annapolis.

Mr. Damico, who was 57, died Monday of cancer at his home in Crofton.

He became assistant secretary for facilities management in February 1991. He supervised construction of two new buildings at Morgan State University and renovation work on three others, additions to a science building at Coppin State College and construction of an academic building at St. Mary's College.

In 1982, Mr. Damico became civilian chief of the construction division in the Baltimore office of the Army Corps of Engineers. He held that job until he retired and took the state job in 1991.

He began working for the Corps of Engineers in 1957 in Cape Canaveral, Fla. Mr. Damico worked on projects for the corps in Europe and the Middle East.

Col. Frank Finch, the district engineer, said, "He was a man who got things done in the tough business of construction," but he also described Mr. Damico as a fair, ethical pioneer in contract dispute resolution.

Martin W. Walsh Jr., the state secretary of general services, praised Mr. Damico's work as a construction manager and described him as "a strong leader, a compassionate friend, a great leader."

Born in Tampa, Fla., Mr. Damico was a 1957 civil engineering graduate of the University of Florida and also did graduate work at Boston University.
