The story of Carl Amelio’s life, and his accomplishments, could easily fill several volumes. The friendships he made and the community problems that he worked to solve are countless. He was a mentor, an energetic fund raiser, and a friend to many. Carl Amelio held the City of Nashua–its people and its problems–as near and dear to himself, and there are few in the city who have not benefited from his work in some way from his efforts.
I chose the photographs shown here from my personal collection, and that is how I will always remember Mr. Amelio. He had a smile on his face as he greeted everyone with a genuinely warm handshake and kind words. If you had a problem, he offered to help you solve it; if you were celebrating, he was delighted if you invited him to join in. He was 100% a genuinely intelligent, thoughtful and compassionate man.
