Michael Scanzello Obituary
Scanzello, Michael
passed away at home peacefully on July 10, 2016, at the age of 69, due to a chronic illness. Michael was born on May 13, 1947 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, a son of the late Michael and Catherine (Votral) Scanzello. He attended Pennsylvania State University, where he received a B.S. in Ceramic Engineering. After relocating to Arizona, he received his teaching credentials from ASU. He taught chemistry at Shadow Mountain High School prior to going into business for himself. From 1982 to 2010, he worked at Glass Financial Group as the President of Employee Benefits. Michael had many interests; he was a world traveler, a member of a rock band, an avid gardener, a lover of music, and even a part-time prank-playing clown. His kitchen was his castle, and his tremendous love for his family and friends was evident in every single meal he prepared. Michael leaves behind his beloved wife, Linda; his daughters, Gretchen, Marla, and Daira; his sister, Lucille Messina; his niece, Scarlett Messina; his niece, Carla Scanzello-Ellis; and his nephews, Michael and Mark Scanzello. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Charles Scanzello.
