Val grew up in Flushing, New York and graduated from Holy Cross High School in 1969. He attended Hartwick College where he played basketball and acquired his Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. He later received his Master's Degree from University of New Haven.
Val's professional career spanned nearly fifty years in the publishing and printing industries which included Ziff Davis, Hearst, Meredith Corporation, Time Inc., World Color, and more recently, his own consultancy business, Publishers' Local Networks.
He is survived by his devoted partner Abbie Van Nostrand of Darien, Connecticut; his son Christopher Scansaroli of Brooklyn, New York; his sister Sheila Palmiotto of Ellicott City, Maryland and her family: husband Michael Palmiotto, and children Nicole, Michael and Dana; brother Michael N. Scansaroli of Apopka, Florida; Abbie's sons: Jamie, Tad and Philip Schwartz; "fraternity brothers" and countless friends; and his mischievous rescue beagle, Wally.
Val is fondly remembered for his amusing anecdotes, his passion for golf, sports and competition, his entertaining knowledge of trivia, his "huge" heart and caring spirit.
