9 Condolences for Dominic E. Scatasti, Sr.
RIP Nick you will be miss now you can be with Nicole give her a hug and kiss from me
My deepest condolences to you and your family. God Bless Dominic and fly angel fly on your journey.
Rest in peace Nick. Prayers for your family.
Lion Bobbie and I affectionately knew him as “Nicky”. He was a fun loving guy who always made those around him feel good. We visited him and Debbie in his home and they visited ours in Laurel. We shared many Lion experiences. Nick worked hard and played hard. I have a photo of him and another great friend of mine and me on display in my home office. I have looked at it many times over the years and it brought back many fond memories. I want Nick’s children to know that their father was a great man and a great Lion and that Delaware is a better place because of his caring service to others.
