Dr. Joseph Scardino was a family man! He adored his wife, Sarelle, his children and grandchildren. He was modest, generous and kind, and could be very funny. He had wonderful stories to tell about his interesting and highly accomplished life. And he was a healer, a rare gift.
My husband, Brian Summers, and I shared many family celebrations with Joe and Sarelle, and today we look back on our every encounter with Joe with gratitude and happy memories. We shall miss him, but rejoice that he had such a long, fruitful and loving life. RIP, dear Joe❤️
