Louis John Scarfo, 92, of Westfield, passed away peacefully, in his home on January 25, 2024, with his loving family by his side. Louis was born on December 11, 1931, son of late John Scarfo and Frances (Torrisi) Scarfo. Louis graduated from West Springfield High School and married his soulmate Irene Scarfo on June 16, 1956. Together they raised four daughters all the while building a successful construction company from the ground up. Over the years he made an impact on his community through the countless subdivisions he built, which he named streets after every person in our family. His latest endeavor being Liberty Manor in Westfield. Louis was a Korean War veteran, where he played two years of football for the U. S. Navy. He was a first generation college graduate from AIC, where he also played football for four years and then played semi-pro for two more years. Louis was most proud of his beautiful wife Irene and his four daughters, who he called his “queens”. Those who knew him enjoyed his quick wit, his one-liners, and sense of humor. His door was always open for food, drinks and great stories. Louis is survived by his four daughters, with whom he held the tightest bond: Marie Masciadrelli and her husband David, Susan Hoey and her husband Stephen (predeceased), Linda Szalankiewicz and her husband Kevin, Joann Caveny and her partner Mark; his cherished grandchildren: Stephanie Harris and partner Matt Boulanger, Kristen Allard (predeceased), Lisa Kozik and husband TJ, Tina Mangan and husband Pete, Michael and Rachel Szalankiewicz, Devon and Sean Caveney, and eight cherished great grandchildren: Jack and Lyla Harris, Mya and Mason Kozik, Cameron and Cole Allard, Madison and Michaela Mangan. He was also a loving brother to his late siblings: Dominic Artuso, Sadie Verani, Sam and Joe Scarfo, and Pauline Barker. He also leaves behind Charlie Pignatare who was like a son to him and his wife Marla, Roy Cavallon (brother in law) and his wife Joyce (predeceased), and Roland Boissonault (brother in law), as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Louis was the patriarch, the rock, the heart and soul of his family; and for all that knew him - “Kapeak Kapork”.
