  1. Your Dad was a great inspiration to our community and school system. His caring and dedication was evident everyday dealing with our children. May God bless your family during these difficult times.

  2. Joey, Lois, and Families,

    I am so sad to hear about your Mom and Dad. I can still see them so totally in love with each other and glowing as they always were. You and your families were all so blessed to have had them as such wonderful parents and grandparents. I will always keep them close to my heart. I will prayer for all of you.

  3. I remember working with your dad at my dad’s store when he did the alterations. Later I got to know him better when I went to work for the school district. He impressed me when I was a teen and young adult, but I saw his true measure as a colleague- he was well respected as a leader in the educational field. Tony was fair, compassionate and kind. You have my deepest condolences and may God bless you and give you strength during this difficult time. He was always so proud of his children and later his grandchildren. May it comfort you to know that he was loved by many and the world was a better place because of Tony.

  4. So sorry for your loss. Mr. Scerbo was my principal in elementary at Fairgrave school…very nice man.

  5. Havnt seen Tony much since we moved to Florida, but he is often in my thoughts. An outstanding representative of our school system, a true gentleman, dangerous Poker player and last of the good old tailors. I guess he just couldnt get past Wilmas death. Loved by all is a great epithat–God will love him.

  6. Scerbo Family,

    Tony was one of the Greatest, one of a kind; We will always remember his kindness.
    I feel so lucky to have taught under Tony”s leadership! God Bless you all!

    Love, Mary Robarge
