To all the Scarpino Families

We are sadden to hear the passing of Santo. We will forever miss him. Santo was a very kind individual for he was always there to give a helping hand and always available whenever you would call him. His humble demeanor and his warm heart will never be forgotten. I was so grateful and fortunate to have had the the opportunity to assist him.
May the pain you feel now be nothing compared to joy found within the memories of Santo. We can't express how much we loved and cherished him. Our deepest condolences for your loss.
