FAUSTO MARCO, 50, died suddenly on February 23, 2012, in Rome, Italy. Fausto was born on October 18, 1961 in Longano, Italy to Carmine and Domenica Berardi. In 1970, he and his family immigrated to Philadel-phia PA. He attended Mater Dolorosa elementary school and North Catholic High School. While still in school, Fausto, along with his three brothers, opened Berardi Brothers Pizzeria and went on to become a successful restaurant owner in South Jersey. One of his restaurants, La Fontana Del Mare, received recognition as "Best Restaurant of South Jersey". Fausto was one of a kind, known for his sense of humor and free style. He had an amazing way with people and touched the lives of many throughout the years. But what Fausto will be mostly remembered for is his big heart.
Fausto is survived by his loving partner, Terri Doughten; 2 children, Teresa and Mark; 3 brothers, Ferdinando, Amato and Salvatore; 9 nieces and nephews. A Memorial Service will be held at Mater Dolorosa Church, 1676 Ruan Street, Philadelphia, on March 11th, at 3 P.M. Donations in memory of Fausto Berardi can be made to the Sbarro Health Research Organization at SBARRO Institute of Cancer Research and Molecular Medicine Bio-Life Building, Suite 333, 1900 N. 12th Street Phila. PA 19122.

My deepest sympathy to the Berardi family. Fausto was always so kind and generous and his restaurant was such a special place for me and my family. He seemed to love walking around LaFontana observing everyone enjoying themselves. He will be missed.

Fausto, there isnt much to say regarding condolences to the family, we are all just in shock. You will definately be missed and forever remembered as the fun and loving man you were. It is so hard to let go of someone so young and good hearted. You were a free spirit-- one of the things I most admired you for, another was being one of my MANY big Brothers who had no problem putting me in my place. You have touched many lives and many hearts, you will be greatly missed but remembered in our hearts with the many memories we shared. Rest in peace and send my love to our family up there with you. I know you will be keeping an eye on me and helping me make the tough decisions in life, just as Gino does. I Love you Cuz..... and always will. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
