Dr. Wilfred E. Calmas Obituary
Wilfred Earl Calmas, MBA, Ph.D. of Brookline and Hyannis, U.S. Navy World War II Veteran, September 24, 2011 at the age of 86. He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Sandra Weininger Calmas, his three sons and their wives, Richard and Ellen, James and Rachel, Steven and Lauren, and his seven grandchildren, Rachael, Sarah, Alexander, Benjamin, Samuel, Alyssa and Josiah, as well as well his sister Gladys Calmas Robinson. Wilfred "Will" Calmas was a man of humility, which belied his fine intellect, his impact on his many friends and patients, and his zest for life. He served in the Navy on active duty on the U.S.S. Brock off the coast of Iwo Jima. He earned his undergraduate degree from Ohio State University, and later his MBA from the University of Michigan. He went on to earn his Masters and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Boston University. He had a distinguished career as a clinical psychologist at Children's Hospital Boston and in a private practice for more than 40 years. He was as a professor of psychology at Boston State College, now the University of Massachusetts, and founded Calmas Associates in 1984, a private consultancy specializing in business coaching. He lectured extensively on parenting issues. Will was known for his love of opera, dance, and theatre and would often travel to New York to attend as many as three or four performances in a single weekend. As an avid reader and movie goer, Will could be counted on to review the most talked about book or latest film release. His greatest joy in life was being with his family and helping his patients, whom he continued to see until only a few weeks ago. He will be dearly missed by all who loved him and all who benefited from his gentle and insightful wisdom and his wonderful smile.
