Scarano, Lawrence F. Jr. ALBANY Lawrence F. Scarano Jr., 92, of Albany, beloved husband of Jayne Diange for 66 years, entered into rest with his family by his side on Saturday, October 26, 2013. Born in Albany, he was the son of the late Lorenzo and Carmella Russo Scarano. He served in the Navy during World War II as a petty officer, 1st class-pharmacist's mate. After he was discharged, he worked for Normanskill Dairy, delivering milk in Albany during the horse-and-wagon era. As an avid sportsman since his days as a Boy Scout in the 1930s, he never missed an opening day of deer hunting or fishing seasons, until he was in his late 80s. He was a member of the Pinehaven Country Club and the Italian American Club, where he enjoyed golf and his Tuesday and Friday card games. He was also a member of the VFW 1019-Louis W. Oppenheim Post, Bucchi McTague Post and the Third District Dental Association. He was a licensed dental technician and partner in Northeastern Dental Lab and Kelly-Scarano Dental. He was predeceased by his brother, Robert J. Scarano.
