Michael G. Scaramellino "Pop" of Kinderhook NY, formerly of Granite Springs NY, passed away after a short illness on Monday January 20, 2020. He was 87 years old. With his family he co-owned and operated Sorrento Restaurant at the Riverfront in Peekskill for many years. He was born October 6, 1932 in Brooklyn to Agnello & Raffaela Scaramellino. On June 10, 1956 he married Marie Babey at the Assumption Church in Peekskill. He his survived by his wife Marie of 63 years, his daughter Michele & John Haley of Ghent NY, his son Michael & Karen Scaramellino of Dover Plains NY, his grandson Michael James & Olivia Scaramellino, and granddaughter Angela & Daniel Tompkins. Great Pop-Pop to Adalynn, Brelynn and Chelsea. 

"Mikey" was a bartender, at Sorrento Restaurant for many years, where he loved making drinks and customers laugh & smile. Pop also enjoyed working at the Somers Town Hall. He took pride in taking care of his property, floating in his pool, & having a cold Budweiser on his patio. When they moved to Kinderhook, "Pop" again made new friends with his quick wit & sense of humor, loved meeting new people & making them smile with his simple but crazy one liners. 

"Pop" loved his many nephews and nieces. He is survived by his sister Helen Christian of Granite Springs, and brother Salvatore Scaramellino of Cortlandt Manor. He is predeceased by his parents, his sister Louise Emery, Francis Scaramellino and brother Anthony Scaramellino who was killed in action during WWII (Battle of Iwo Jima).

Our dad was a one of kind guy, husband, father, friend and family member. His euphemisms, mischievous & witty expressions would make you laugh till you cried, but he also had a soft gentle kind of way about him with his thoughtful ways and personality.Mike was a parishioner of Saint James Roman Catholic Church in Chatham, New York, and a lifelong member of the Peekskill and Kinderhook Elks. He had many dinner outings over the years with fun-loving Gourmet Club members frequenting fine food establishments; friends and memories he treasured his entire life. His loving family relishes many wonderful holiday memories, as well as many great vacations, enjoyed together. He loved every pet and animal he ever met and they loved him right back, and more! He’ll surely be missed! Head toward the light "Pop" and we'll all look forward to seeing you again on the other side. May reading this bring a smile to your face as you remember your own encounters with our precious father and loving husband Mikey.
