Longtime Port Richmond resident Louis Scamardella, 82, a retired truck driver and hardworking family man, died Tuesday in Clove Lakes Health Care and Rehabilitation Center, Castleton Corners.

Born on Staten Island, he lived in Port Richmond until 1955, when he relocated to Bronx. He returned to Port Richmond in 1971.
