Davenport Campus remembers Dr. Cacioppo

Dr. Anthony Cacioppo

A memorial service was held on Friday, Nov. 30, for Anthony Cacioppo, D.C., M.S., DABCO, DIBCN, in the Gothic Room at Lyceum Hall. Family and friends from near and far joined Dr. Cacioppo’s Palmer family to celebrate his life and accomplishments.

Dr. Cacioppo’s wife, Eileen, shared stories of how they first met and how he loved to make her laugh by doing impersonations (including Elvis and an “Italian doing a Norwegian singing Roy Orbison”).

John Stites, D.C., Rock Island Clinic, also spoke about “the man I deeply admired” and talked of how influential he was to the clinic as well as detailed in his work. “We used to joke that he could see a dress code violation at 100 yards.”

Fellow colleagues and a former student also shared how he had in-spired them and made a difference in their lives. Dr. Cacioppo graduated from Palmer in 1960 and served the College for 24 years. Most recently, he was the director of community clinics. He died Nov. 9 at the age of 69.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Davenport Campus Library or Clinics.
