Bernard A. Scarcia, "Benny" of Northeast Philadelphia passed away suddenly on Monday, November 11, 2019 at Jefferson Frankford Hospital at the age of 72. Beloved husband of Sharon Scarcia (nee Sibilla) and the late Victoria J. Scarcia (nee Sauer). Devoted father of Darlene McGovern (David), Tina Widmann (Dave), Donna Forrester (Gary), Anthony Scarcia (Kelly) and step father of Scott Nagle (Debbie). Loving Pop of Rachel, Lauren, David, Hailey, Gavin, Dalton, Mason, Nathan, Victoria, Lucianna, Ava and Kaylee.

Brother in law of Tom Sibilla, John Sauer (Donna), Henry Sauer (Debbie) and the late William Sauer (Claudia); also survived by his nieces and nephews.

As everyone knows, Benny loved many things in life. Food, cars (especially corvettes), Doo-Wop Music, Philadelphia Sports Teams, fishing at the lake, caring for his lawn and garden, but most of all, his family. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. Everyone who met him, loved him. Benny was such a sensitive man, that he was often moved to tears while watching commercials. As the commercial ended, he would say "I enjoyed that." And that is how he lived his life, enjoying it to the fullest.
