George was born on February 16, 1949 and raised in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia. He graduated from North Catholic High School and later enlisted in the army, serving his country honorably in the Vietnam War. George was a dedicated family man, first to his loving parents Martin and Pauline and his sister Agnes, with whom he shared a strong bond and lovingly referred to as “Babe” a nickname that has stuck through the years. His family grew from there with George becoming a fiercely proud father of five to Erik, Kristen, Kevin, Megan and Lauren and loving Uncle to Kimberly and Danielle. A close-knit family was important to George and weekend barbecues by the pool were frequent. George provided the jokes and always got at least one laugh, his own. We always told him he was his own best audience. But that didn’t matter, he was never happier than when the family was together.

Anthony E. Finocchio, 37, passed away suddenly on Monday, March 14, 2022.

Anthony is survived by his mother Rosie Campbell (nee Danese) and stepfather Gerry Campbell; loving brother of Theresa Murrin (Thomas), half-brother of Adam Finocchio, stepbrother of Shannon McCarty (John), Geoffrey Campbell (Tara), and Mandi Marcolina (Tim). He also leaves behind his beloved fiancée Rachel Worrell; nephew and niece Tommy and Tessa Murrin along with many other extended family members and friends.

Anthony was a strong-willed child right from the start. When given direction on how to do things, Anthony chose to do it his way. He gave his projects little twists and turns that would suit him. Anthony was independent in that aspect. When he discovered music, those feet would start moving and boy could he twerk. In his teen years he took side jobs and was a hard worker. Later in life his interests turned to cooking and that was something that he loved to do as he had a passion for it. His passion for cooking and creating delicious dishes was a daily pleasure of his which led to his career as a chef.

She made many spaghetti and meatball dinners for Joe, the best potato salad and coleslaw, and helped her daughter Pat prepare Thanksgiving dinner every year. Marion loved lighthouses and seagulls.

Joseph A. Loyden, 64, longtime resident of Mayfair, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 4, 2022 with his family by his side.

Joseph fought valiantly for 23+ years with Parkinson’s disease, and for the last 4 years against worsening dementia.

He was a proud member of the Philadelphia Police Department, as a Police Officer for 30 years, serving in the 17th, 35th, 26th districts as well as Highway Patrol and the Traffic Division.

Joe absolutely loved his job and was meticulous about his appearance as a police officer for Philadelphia.

I will miss Joe dearly. We were soul mates. We spent every day together, many weekends driving the winding roads of the Pocono Mountains finding little stores to shop in, and diners for Joe to have whatever meal he could. He enjoyed a good cup of coffee, a good meatloaf and mashed potato dinner, and of course some chocolate ice cream for dessert. And, of course, his main food group – chocolate chip cookies
