Robert A. Scapellati Sr.
Robert A. Scapellati Sr., 72, of Berlin, passed away on February 14, 2021 at his home with his family by his side. Born in New Britain in 1948 to Dorothy (Kolodziej) and the late Salvatore Scapellati, Robert graduated from New Britain High School. Robert was a retired fireman for the City of New Britain. Robert could always be found at the local car shows or “cruise nights” checking out all the cars, never on the look for a specific car or model- he just loved all cars. Over the course of Robert’s life, he has owned at least 500 cars of every make, model, and year you could imagine. A devoted son, Robert spent the past fifteen years assisting his mother, Dorothy- always making her a priority in his life. In addition to his mother, Dorothy, Robert is survived by his sister Doreen, as well as his son, Robert Scapellati Jr.; and cousins and friends. Calling hours for Robert will be held on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at New Britain Memorial- Donald D. Sagarino Funeral Home, 444 Farmington Ave, New Britain, CT from 5:00-7:00 pm. A graveside service will follow on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at St. Mary Cemetery, 1141 Stanley St, New Britain, CT at 11:00am.
