Life Story for Serafino "Sero" DiDio

Serafino "Sero"  DiDio
Serafino ‘Sero’ DiDio, a longtime resident of Brewster, NY, died on June 30th, 2018 after a valiant battle against cancer. He was 70 years old.

Sero was born on March 22, 1948 in Brooklyn, NY to Paul and Sadie (DiCaroli) DiDio. He was a 1966 Brewster High School graduate and continued his education at Dutchess Community College. Sero was an insurance agent for over 40 years, a founding partner with Bruen Deldin DiDio Associates Inc. before retiring in 2011. Throughout his career, he touched the lives of so many both professionally and personally in the community.

On April 26, 1980 Sero married the love of his life, Meryl Scheiner, in Brewster, NY. Together they raised four children.

Sero’s passions included cooking, golfing, and traveling. Aruba and Montauk were among his favorite destinations. Gathering around the table and serving gourmet meals to family and friends gave him great joy. Sero’s warmth, contagious smile, and affectionate bear hugs were felt by all who knew him. His generosity and zest for life will be long remembered.
