IRONDEQUOIT, N.Y. (WROC) — Funeral service was held Wednesday for the man who died last week in an armed carjacking attempt in Gates.

Richard Sciascia, 71 of Irondequoit, was shot and killed during an attempted car jacking on Buell Road.

Over 200 people came out to the funeral at Sant Pius Tenth Church on Chili Avenue. Speakers described Sciascia as early riser and a man who always took care of his family, always trying new things in life who could talk to anyone.

His grandson said he was the hardest working man he ever knew. Sciascia visited his kids and grandkids daily, always full of energy. He was also a bread man who worked for Hostess, often times were told, giving leftover bread to the needy.

No arrests have been made in connection to the incident, the latest in a string of recent violent car thefts across Monroe County.
