Giovanni Scaramucich, 81 years old, of Bayside, New York, passed away on Tuesday, April 2, 2024. His forever loved wife Anna passed away in 1987 and they are finally together at last.

Giovanni is survived by his son Johnny, daughter-in-law Vanessa, daughter Suzanne, son-in-law James, three grandchildren Jack, Finnbar, and Shea, sister Marija, nieces Darinka, Marina, Loretta, and Silvia. He was predeceased by his parents Nikola and Marija, sister Gasparina, and nephew Danino.

Giovanni was born in Loznati, Cres Croatia. He started his career as a Merchant Marine and traveled all of Europe and eventually came to America in 1968. Anna came soon after and they got married. Like everyone else who comes from other countries and migrate to America, you have many different jobs. He was lucky to have found District Council #9, New York City Painters Union where he became a well-respected artist.

He worked in the Frick Museum, Ralph Lauren Shops, Historical Homes, and many other specialty projects. He was so talented and loved doing it. Had a great eye for detail. Anna and he moved to Long Island, NY where they raised their family. After many years, he moved to Bayside, NY which he always called “The Best Place to Live – other than Croatia.”

There he was blessed to live close to his chosen Croatian family/friends and created an amazing life of happiness, garage wine tastings, Astoria Friday night card games, he just loved being with his friends. He called everyone his brother, and everyone his sister. He was also a member of the Society Chersina and Vice President of the Anchor Benevolent Society.

He loved being part of these clubs, which include Carnival Festivals, dances, and holiday get togethers. Giovanni’s favorite event was being Santa for the kids. His loud laugh always got the kids attention. He was also an active parishioner of Most Precious Blood Church and was always available to help with repairs, fundraisers, & Holy Events.

His three grandchildren were the joys in his life. Nonno loved nothing more than being with them and watching them do what they loved. They always thought Nonno owned the M&M factory because he would visit with pounds of M&Ms, just because. They are his pride & joy. Thank you Nonno for being so special, loving, giving, and compassionate, we will cherish all the fun memories we had together. We will love you for eternity.
