JOSEPH N. SCIABICA SEPT 3, 1915 - OCT 29, 2010 Joseph Sciabica, who others knew as J.N. or Joe and also 'Nick' Sciabica, went home to the Lord, receiving his final healing in his home on Friday October 29, 2010. Joseph always taught his family that business was more than making money. It involved sincere relationships with customers who always deserved our very best efforts. He always said if he could not make the highest quality olive oil possible, he would not make any at all. He truly had a 'missionary's zeal' for supplying quality olive oil and loved the farmers' markets, both in Modesto and San Francisco. 'He taught us so much. We will never forget his influence on our family and we will continue to pass these ideals on to our next Sciabica generations.' - Daniel Sciabica Joseph is survived by his wife of 67 years, Gemma, his two sons Nick and Daniel, their wives Terry and Genevieve, four grandchildren Joseph, his wife Calley, Mari, her husband Robert Capps, Jonathan, his wife Katie, Christa, and four great-grandchildren Nicholas, Andrew, Dante and Gemma. Visitation will be Thursday November 4, 2010 from 4pm to 6:30pm at Franklin & Downs Funeral Chapel, 1050 McHenry Ave. The family will have a private rosary and funeral service.
