In Memory of
Joseph Anthony Scarano Sr.
March 30, 2018
Dad was so proud to have served with the PAPD and told
stories at every family gathering. From 1961 - 1981 he
worked for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
Police Department. During this time, 100 crimes were
closed due to his skills in photography, visual aids,
and composite drawings.
He wore his
retirement ring since 1981 until his last breath. My Dad
created the patch we wear on our uniform today. As the
PAPD artist back in the day he created several designs
to pick from. Very proud that I got his shield number
“476” and I wore the patch he created and honored to have worn his shield number.
survived by his wife Nancy of 62 years, 4 children, 17
Grand Children and 2 Great Grandchildren. He was an
established Artist and was the past President of the
International Cops for Christ. And he was my HERO.
