Paul Francis Sciortino, a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, coach, mentor and friend to so many, was called home to heaven on February 1, 2021.
Born in Brooklyn, NY to Emma and Francis Sciortino on August 29, 1939. Paul was raised in Ozone Park, NY, with his brother John. After graduating from Most Holy Trinity high school in Brooklyn, Paul enrolled in the school of business at Saint John’s University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He put himself through college working at UWanna’s hot dog and juices. While attending Saint John’s he joined the ROTC and upon graduation joined the Army active reserve. Soon thereafter Paul met the true love of his life, Ann Marie Bostrom, whom he married in 1965. Together they had three children, Chris, Beth and Stephen. Paul’s love for his wife and children was matched only by desire to support them. When he wasn’t working, Paul spent all his free time with his wife and children.
Paul coached many of Lynbrook’s youth programs in baseball, basketball and soccer starting in the 1970’s and through the mid 1990’s. His passion for youth sports led him to help run the little league baseball program and bring club soccer to Lynbrook.
Paul worked in the packaging industry for the first half of his career, rising to the position of National Sales manager for several of the country’s largest packaging firms before giving it all up to start his own company. Paul’s career took him and his family, from New York to Chicago, IL then to King of Prussia, PA before finally settling back in Lynbrook, New York. In 1982 along with two friends from Lynbrook he began a small beverage business which eventually grew into a packaging and distribution company based in Farmingdale, NY. In 2000 Paul retired from AICP to embark on the next chapter of his life.
In 2000, Ann & Paul built their dream home in East Hampton, NY where they lived there for nearly 12 years hosting parties and entertaining friends and family. While in East Hampton Paul sat on the board of the neighborhood HOA and became a fixture at the local coffee shoppe.
He will be deeply missed by his friends and family and his legacy and memories will live on in all of us.
Paul is survived by his loving wife Ann Marie, his son Christopher & his wife Lisa and their children Luca & Kai; his daughter Beth and her husband John Ailanjian and their children Isabella, Amelia, and Zohrap; and his son Stephen and his wife Michelle and their children Jake, Talan, and Charlie. Paul is also survived by his brother John and his wife Janet.
