    Louis Sarcone Sr., 83, South Philadelphia baking icon
    If you've ever enjoyed a hoagie, cheesesteak, or roast pork sandwich over the years, there is a good chance that its roll came from Sarcone's Bakery in South Philadelphia. The Sarcone family, which set up shop in 1918 in a rowhouse on Ninth Street between Catharine and Fitzwater, lost its patriarch.
