Born in 1941 in Bronx, New York to Joseph and Dorothea Scarano, Art graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1959. Art served in the United States Army during the Vietnam war and was a recognized sharp shooter. Following his military service, Art attended Pace College where he earned a degree in Business Administration.
In the 1980’s, Art moved to Northern Virginia and worked in the marketing department of AT&T. Upon his retirement, Art pursued and obtained a Master Degree in Theology from the Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College in 1997. Art loved and proclaimed the everlasting Truths and teachings of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Also a professed Secular Franciscan, Art founded the Arlington Diocesan Padre Pio Prayer Group chapter which met monthly at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church since 2003 which Art faithfully led until his passing.
Preceding Art in death were his parents. He is survived by his three daughters, Janine, Michelle and Dorothea, and his son Joe, his siblings Joe, Steve and Elena, and countless friends who loved Art so much and will remember him fondly.
