Mario Bevilacqua, 83, of Longport, passed away surrounded by family on June 10, 2021. Born 1937 in Pennadomo, Italy, to Vincenza and Lorenzo Bevilacqua, Mario first emigrated to the United States and settled in Philadelphia as a young adult. He returned to his hometown of Pennadomo, Italy and married Ada D’Angelo. The pair eventually moved to Longport, NJ where they raised their family and operated his business until retirement.
Mario was loved deeply by his family and will be held forever in their hearts. He was a straightforward and unassuming man who judged people by their character and not their possessions. His favorite phrase "c'est la vie" was uttered until his final days and exemplifies how he approached most things, including his final years. Mario is survived by his beloved wife Ada; children Lorenzo, Joseph, and Christina; siblings Gabriel, Josephine and Bruno; cherished grandchildren Luka and Evie; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
A visitation will be held on Saturday, August 21st from 10-11am, followed by a service at 11am, at the George H. Wimberg Funeral Home, 1707 New Road, Linwood, NJ 08221.
