Emilio Flores Calica, MD

February 20, 1929 ~ July 11, 2023

A witness to the first invasion of outside forces in The Philippine’s northern most territory on December 8, 1941 Emilio Calica’s life has always inspired a deep and sweet reverence form patients, his friends, family members near and far and most of all from his beloved immediate family. Perseverance, humility and devotion.

Emilio’s wife, Emily Jermain, a fellow medical professional birthed two children who “followed in their parent’s footsteps” by focusing their own lives on serving others. In Manila, son Carl Calica graduated from the same medical school as his father Far Eastern University. Son Kevin Calica, a designer, learned from observing hospitals and medical offices the value of compassion and the preciousness of life.

Encountering the world of our dear Dad Emilio you know the care and gentleness it took to create and tend gardens large and small. If you knew Emilio you knew the power of silence. Following the sunshine and cherishing warmth Emilio enjoyed life by the sea in his final two and a half decades

A lover of morning grapefruit and a highly disciplined daily routine, Emilio appreciated and attracted good neighbors who remain treasured friends to this day. In Dad’s final hours and minutes he was blanketed by the care of VNA Home Hospice. To say we are grateful would be an understatement.

Emilio – a peaceful human – a quiet soul – always and forever – a supportive doctor to so many – a supportive husband, father, grandfather and so much more to all. Naturally there might be a desire to offer something tangible during a time like this and here is our wish.

If you’re inspired please do something kind and unexpected for a neighbor in honor of Emilio.

Sad to hear of Dr. E. Calica’s passing just recently. I worked with Dr. Calica years ago in Cohoes N.Y. He was a good physician and most of all a good human being. I considered myself fortunate to have known him and his wife Emily. Condolences to his family.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
