On Wednesday, February 20th, Paul E. Scapatici, 76, son of James and Sally Scapatici, passed after a short but intense battle with cancer. Paul met death on his own terms, fighting to get home to his wife and dog before the end of his battle. Paul was a 20-year veteran of the New York State Police, stationed out of Raybrook and Troop B; he served with pride for those 20 years. After that, he held a variety of positions from small business owner, to director of campus security, to happily retired main chef of the house. Paul is survived by his son, Paul Scapatici (Darci); his two daughters, Alisa Scapatici, Ph.D. (Paul Buckowski) and Lexi Scapatici; three step-children; a number of grandchildren; his former wife, Sue Scapatici; and his beloved wife, Connie Scapatici and their dog, Keeper. There will be a celebration of life in Union Springs, NY during the summer months. In remembering Paul, please remember the devotion with which he helped to protect those he loved.
Arrangements are with White Chapel Funeral Home Inc, 197 South St, Auburn.
