Obituary of Pasquale Scutari
Pasquale “Patsy” Scutari Sr., 93, loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather of Syracuse, NY, passed away with his family by his side on Saturday evening at Crouse Hospital. Patsy was born on March 31,1929, in Noepoli, Potenza, Italy to Francesco Scutari and Rosa Francomano. Patsy and his late wife, Rosa, immigrated to the US in the early 1950s to pursue his career as a professional furniture maker. He later became a custom home builder but is most famously known for founding Patsy's Pizza alongside his wife in 1982. He retired, leaving his children, Rose Mary Insalaco and Michael Scutari, to continue his passion for bringing CNY families together around the table. Patsy was affectionately known by his family as "Nonno." He will be remembered for his strong work ethic, ever-present stubbornness, love for great food and wine, many stories, passion for Italian music and dancing, but most importantly the pride, love, and admiration he had for the family he and "Nonna" created.Patsy was predeceased by his loving wife, Rosa, his granddaughter, Isabella G.
