Louis P. Alcamo Sr.

Plumbing contractor

Louis P. Alcamo Sr., an Arnold plumbing and heating contractor and a former head of the Order of Alhambra, died Sunday of cancer at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis.

Mr. Alcamo, 68, retired in December after operating the L. P. Alcamo Plumbing and Heating Co. for 38 years.

In the 1980s, he was supreme commander of the international fraternal group that helps retarded children. He also headed its Alcala Caravan in Baltimore. He also had been a member of the Holy Trinity Council of the Knights of Columbus and was a former president of the Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Master Plumbers Associations and served on the county's Plumbing Board.

The Baltimore native served in the Navy during World War II as a gunner's mate aboard a submarine in the Pacific.

A boxing fan, he became active more than a year ago with the Pasadena Boxing Club, helping train boxers and working as a second in their corners during fights.

A Mass of Christian burial for Mr. Alcamo was offered Thursday at St. Andrew by the Bay Roman Catholic Church in Cape St. Claire.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, the former Phyllis Stine; a son, Louis P. Alcamo Jr. of Queenstown; a daughter, Leatha Le Blanc of Pelham, N.Y.; two sisters, Carmella DeFlavis of Baltimore and Nancy Gunzelman of Ocean City; and three grandchildren.
