The kindest, most generous, loving man i have ever known. I have so many memories of you especially during Christmas time which was your favorite time of the year. I hope I can be half the man you were when I have a family of my own. I miss you terribly grandpa, and I will always keep you close to my heart.

To David, June, Donna, Denise and Dennis

I just heard today about Julius. I want to say how sorry I am to hear this news and that I have very fond memories of him and June opening their home to us when we were younger. The Scarpetti household was a great place to be a kid back then and Julius and June were so nice to let us hang out there with David.

Jack and Marie McCoy are retired in Florida but they send their condolences as well.

To the Family of Jay Scarpetti:

I've only met you in semi-formal occasions---at Holiday Parties at the Rowland Institute or Polaroid. But I knew and worked with Jay a little bit over a 30 year period. We tended to be in the same laboratory at the same times, but working on different things.

Nonetheless, a few of my interactions with him---invariably about his love for photography and my budding interest in the same---live on in memory. I don't think I ever heard him raise his voice, though he certainly had strong opinions about photography (both technically and artistically).

But the thing I remember best is that, no matter how busy he was, he would always make time for me. When I was young and had my first real job at Polaroid, his patience was an impressive model. It was reflected in the care he put into each print. And it is something I'll keep from him.

Dear Dave & Trish,
Please accept my condolences. This has to be especially hard this time of year for you and your family. How is Frankie handling it?
I mainly knew your Dad from your pictures of him and Frankie you posted. He looked like he really loved well and was fun to be around.
Love Peggy/Mom

Jay was charming, gracious, and witty, and a highly respected colleague. His thoroughness was an example to all who worked with him, and remains an inspiration.

I fondly remember the chats Jay and I used to have about life. May he rest in peace.
