Philip C. Scarfo, 71, beloved husband of 51 years to Lillian B. Scarfo, died on Saturday, October 24th, 2020, at home surrounded by his loving family after a long and courageous battle. Born in Meriden, CT on March 21, 1949, he was the son of the late Carmelo and Jennie (Longo) Scarfo.

Phil resided in Meriden his entire life, attending O. H. Platt High school and Paier College of Art. He retired in April from the American Liver Foundation where he was a Helpline and Education Specialist. He loved to share his knowledge and to be able to educate others on liver disease. He enjoyed volunteering at the Franciscan Life Center, especially during the holiday season, where he shared his love for bow and wreath making, among other things. When he was still driving, it wouldn't be a surprise to have him show up at his many Aunt's or Cousin's houses and more recently those visits became numerous phone calls to check in with everyone.

Besides his loving wife Lillian, he is survived by his three daughters, Juliann Scarfo-Maraczi and her husband Kenny, Kara Scarfo, and Marissa Scarfo; his two beloved dogs, Ella and Stella; two brothers, Dennis Scarfo and Kathy and Neil Scarfo and Sandy. He is survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who are like family.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Dr. Jarrod Post, he always made Phil a priority and provided the best care for him.

Family and friends are invited to calling hours on Thursday October 29th from 4 to 7pm at the John J. Ferry & Sons Funeral Home, 88 East Main St, Meriden, CT 06450. A graveside service will be held Friday October 30, 2020 at 10am at Sacred Heart Cemetery, 250 Gypsy Lane, Meriden, CT 06450. Everyone is asked to meet directly at the cemetery. Due to the current pandemic, masks and social distancing are required for all services.

Should friends desire, contributions in his memory may be made to the American Liver Foundation, P.O. Box 299, West Orange, NJ 07052, or Franciscan Home Care and Hospice 267 Finch Ave, Meriden, CT 06451. For online condolences, please visit

Sending condolences and prayers to Lillian & her daughters - Phil’s loves - his guardian Angels. Phil was one of the kindness person I knew - always there for others - to help where he can. His personality was larger than life - I could see that from the first time we met at G.Fox in 1975 . Through the years - we would lose touch but the minute we spoke - it felt like yesterday. That was Phil - the man with the biggest heart - kindest soul & greatest spirit. I was so blessed to have known him - Rest In Peace my friend.

Phil will be missed dearly. He was not only my co-worker at ALF for 16 years, but a kind friend who loved to talk about his family, the holidays, his authentic italian recipes and more. We shared many stories about our families. He was so caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable about liver disease, to anyone that needed someone to talk to, and a shoulder to lean on. Although he suffered from many health issues, it never stood in his way to help others.
Rest in peace, Phil.

Phil was a fountain of hope for me as I a transplant recipient and a member of the Los Angeles ALF board.
At a time when I didn't know which way to turn Phil connected me with more than one doctor for second opinions.
He was always so compassionate and caring with me and my wife and I saw him as a beacon of light in our struggle.
Our condolences to his wife and entire family who must have cherished him as the loving person he was and always showed that in his caring way.

My condolences to the Scarfo Family. I will never forget the help and guidance Phil gave to me as my husband was struggling with Liver Disease, whom since passed away. I will never forget his passion for the ALF. He is, and always will be a blessing to many.
Please know that my thoughts and prayers will be with all his loved ones during this difficult time.

My deepest sympathy to Phil's family. When I first became involved in the American Liver Foundation, I heard wonderful things about Phil from his staff colleagues. His great passion for the cause was appreciated by all. As a spouse of someone with type 1 diabetes who also had an organ transplant, I understand all that Phil and his family went through over the years. Sending you strength during this difficult time.
