Judge Alaimo set the standard Bill Roe
January 1, 2010
Judge Alaimo is an American hero -- pure and simple. His life story is a profile in courage from start to finish -- including escaping from a Nazi prison camp to serving with unparalled distinction on the bench. He and Griffin Bell were close friends for decades and they walked the pathway of heros, in step with each other -- remarkable men. Brilliant and warm, confident, inspiring great affection in all whom they met, big-hearted, in love with their families and their country. Judge Bell passed away on January 5, 2009 and within a year, the great Anthony Alaimo has followed, leaving his legend to shine on behind him. I like to think he and Judge Bell are a constellation, two stars that shine on forever as a beacon for us all. I was lucky enough to become friends with Judge Alaimo beginning in 2004 -- I wish fortune had started that earlier, but he poured enough light on me in the five years that I knew him to make me as much of a fan as any of his legion of lifelong friends and admirers. I was so glad the Mercer Press got to publish Vince Coppola's wonderful biography of Judge Alaimo, The Sicilian Judge -- it should be a bestseller and a movie. In the minds of Judge Alaimo's army of friends, of course, it already is. Rest in Peace, Judge Alaimo, it was my privilege to have known you.

Judge Alaimo epitomized everything a man & a
lawyer should be. He fought bravely for his adopted country in WW II, zealously & ably represented his clients, served on the bench with great distinction, and was a devoted husband & father. He loved the law & was deeply committed to the principle of justice for all, no matter how humble or poor, including those who had committed heinous crimes, insisting they be treated humanely and with dignity even when imprisoned. What a fine man, what an esteemed jurist, what an incomparable life of love, honor, service and integrity! It was a great honor to serve as his law clerk in 1985-86 & a wonderful learning experience. Our heroes leave us too soon. He will be greatly missed.

The Judge and his beloved Jean were neighbors first, then friends for over 40 years. They will be missed, but never forgotten.
We always have rung in the New Year with Jean's famous baked ham followed by a call to thank them for their friendship. Tomorrow we will prepare the ham and then remember them both with a prayer and the fondest of memories.
God bless the Alaimo famly.
