A few famous Philadelphians and their resting place

Doing this blog has made me curious about where our local celebrities have been buried throughout the years. I found out today that our infamous mayor, Frank Rizzo, Sr., was buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, on the Montgomery/Philadelphia County line.

Connie Mack, of Philadelphia baseball fame, is buried there, too. The exact address is 4001 West Cheltenham Avenue, in case anyone wants to do a little grave hunting!
