It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Copier Fax Business Technologies President, Al Scibetta. Al passed away peacefully on January 2nd, 2022 after a brief illness.
Al co-founded Copier Fax Business Technologies with his wife, Andrea Scibetta in 1990 as a Konica Minolta dealer. Over the past 30 years, the company has grown to over 32 employees and has evolved as one of the top office technology providers in the region.
Al was an icon in the office technology industry. He was a frequent guest speaker and presenter at Select Dealer Group conferences, Konica Minolta conferences, and other related panels across the country. Additionally, under Al’s leadership, Copier Fax was named a Konica Minolta Dealer Award of Excellence and received several local recognitions for business growth, Best Places to Work, and ranking as one of Buffalo’s Top Private Companies.
Al is known for his philanthropic work in the WNY Community. This includes years of support for Summit Education Center, Buffalo Hospice, Roswell Park, and Child & Family Services of WNY.
He also served for several years as a Cardinal O’Hara Board of Directors.
Since 1997, Al’s son David Scibetta joined Copier Fax Business Technologies as a partner. Together, with Andrea the company grew to the full-service technology partner it is known as today.
Al had very strong relationships with his employees, industry colleagues, and clients, many of whom he considered his friends. He made every person he met feel welcomed, and always loved to share a good laugh.
Al was a big fan of the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres but was especially known for his love of the New York Yankees. He also had a great love for Italian cooking and was famous for his homemade pizzas from scratch.
He also loved our country, having served in the United States Army, and was passionate about the success and well-being of all levels of government.
From all the great accomplishments and adventures in life, his family was the root of his happiness. Al leaves his business partner, travel companion, and beloved wife of 27 years, Andrea. He also leaves his children, David (Heather), Paul (Krissy), Angela, Anthony (Jessica), and George as well as 11 grandchildren (and one on the way). He was a cherished brother, uncle, cousin, godfather, and friend to many people.
A celebration of Al’s life will be held later this year.
