My husband James and I extend our condolences to the Scarlavai family for the passing of Mr. Scarlavai.
We did not have the pleasure of meeting him in person, but have heard about him from his son Mike, our neighbor.
Mr. Scarlavai lived an interesting life and seems to have been a fighter to the end.

May he rest in peace.

So many great memories of you Uncle Richard. My favorites are the hunting trips in White Cloud, MI. Those trips for me sum up the man you were. Your generosity and kindness allowed us all to enjoy the love and camaraderie that was so special.
you will be missed.....
