On the early morning of Thursday, September 4, 2014, Paul Saracino, age 93, of Bradenton, FL entered into eternal rest peacefully while in the care at the TideWell Hospice House in Lakewood Ranch Medical Center.  Born in 1921 in Fernandina Beach, Florida, he was the son of the late Angelina Tringali and Guisippe Saracino, natives of Sicily, Italy.
