Alexander Vincent Guerrina, age 96, died peacefully on Monday, October 28, 2013 at his home. He was born on October 21, 1917 in Philadelphia, PA to Alessandro and Isabella (Baratta) Guerrina, the second youngest of 9 children. Alex always had a zest for life and worked hard in the family business as a stone mason. He married the love of his life Lillian (Bosworth) on April 27, 1940 and had two children. They spent a happy life together in Flourtown, PA enjoying the company of family and friends alike. Alex could often be found with a microphone in hand singing a round of “Volare” or “Danny Boy” to the delight of the crowd. Alex was a hard worker who was an inspiration to those around him. He is survived by his children Lillian Isabella (Charles) Haig and Alexander Joseph Guerrina (Patricia Gerstel); five grandchildren Nancy (John) Wisniewski, Cheryl (Ken) Marquette, Alexander (Casey) Guerrina, Dana Guerrina, and Nicholas Guerrina; and seven great grandchildren Colin, Ethan, Jackson, Colton, Darby, Parker and Harrison.
