The New Jersey State Police is saddened to hear about the passing of Corporal Roland Scarinci, a World War II veteran and National Treasure who lived to be 100 years of age. Roland served our country with distinction and honor.
“Roland was an American Hero and an inspirational figure who was a beacon of light to all who knew him, and it was an honor to call him a friend,” said Colonel Patrick J. Callahan, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police. “On behalf of the State Police family, I extend my heartfelt condolences to Roland’s daughter Denise and the entire Scarinci family.”
Rest in peace, Corporal Roland Scarinci. We will always remember your legacy, your impact on our community, and the joy you brought people when playing the harmonica. Thank you for your service – you will be greatly missed.
