Martin Scarpace, father of Kristin Scarpace Giammona ’81, Harker’s elementary division head, and Marty Scarpace ’79; grandfather of Matt Giammona ’13 and Mia Giammona ’17 and Gabriella, Francesca and Antonio Scarpace, passed away Feb. 23, 2013, after a long illness.
Scarpace was director of the Dad’s Club in 1975 and spearheaded the drive to fund a swimming pool, which was completed the following year. Scarpace, who owned a food brokering company, brought his expertise to Harker as a sausage cook at the Harker Family & Alumni Picnic in the 1970s and contributed to Harker in many other ways. Harker is very sorry to lose this longtime member of the community and extends its deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
