Born Oct. 1, 1920, in Baltimore, he was the son of the late Anthony and Theresa Hatter DiSaia. He was the husband of the late Charlotte Ellen Willett DiSaia, his "prom date," who he married Oct. 11, 1941, and who died Sept. 7, 2007.

He served in the Army Air Corps and the Communication Center at the Pentagon from February 1943 until March 1946.

In July 1971, he was appointed by the judges of the Court of Appeals of Maryland and served as the chief deputy clerk, retiring July 1, 1981. A few years after retirement, he and his wife moved to Lewes, until his return in May 2006. After the death of his wife, he moved to his daughter's residence in Westminster.
