PIERRE G. de CALONNE, 72, of Fort Wayne, died Monday, Nov. 18, 2019, in Fort Wayne. Pierre was born April 10, 1947, in Balikpapan, Kalimantan Timor (Indonesia), a son of the late Antoine and Agnes de Calonne. He was a member of Our Lady of Good Hope Parish. Although he was born in Southeast Asia, he served proudly for 13 years in the United States Navy. He was a combat service medic for two tours with the 3rd Marine Division during the Vietnam War. In 1973, he became an American citizen. His professional life included service to others: he worked as an ICU critical care nurse, a physician extender for cardiac surgeons, and a medical practice administrator. His personal life included a passion for the culinary arts, especially Asian cuisine. He fulfilled his lifelong dreams of flying helicopters and international travel. “Pierre deeply loved his family and was devoted to his wife, his daughter, his grandson, who is following his grandfather’s footsteps in the military, and his special companion service dog Macy”. “Pierre fought valiantly against health challenges for over 40 years, but he remained hopeful and forward looking until his death”. Surviving are his wife of 46 years, Kathy M. de Calonne; daughter, Liana M. de Calonne; grandson, Hudson J. Fairchild; three brothers, Richard, Constant and Lucien de Calonne; two sisters, Anita de Calonne and Edith Lawrence; five sisters-in-law, Wilhelmina, Eleanor, and Jo Ann de Calonne, Annette May, Mary Jo Linder, and Susann Gilbert.
