Dr. Vincent Muscarella Obituary

Dr. Vincent J Muscarella was born on November 21, 1953, in Norristown, PA. He passed away surrounded by the people who loved him most on February 1, 2024, after a short, but courageous battle with a rare type of lymphoma.  He was only 70 years old. 


Vincent was predeceased by his parents, Armelio and Marie Muscarella, and his brother Paul.  He is survived by his two daughters, Erica Testa (Jason) and Rosemarie Bucci (Joe), His 4 cherished grandchildren, Kali, Lucas, Olivia, and Dominic, and his long-time partner, Carol Lancia.  He also leaves behind 3 brothers, Armelio Jr., Charles, and David.  It would be a mistake not to mention that Vince also leaves behind his faithful and devoted canine baby, Gian Luca, who never left his side. 


Dr. Muscarella was a true success story with Norristown roots.  He was the first in his family to attend and graduate from college and then went on to complete his medical degree.  He worked as a podiatric surgeon in the Norristown area for most of his career until he had to retire suddenly in November due to his disease.  He was an amazing doctor who truly cared about his patients and his community.  The awards and accommodations he received over his 40+ years as a physician are too numerous to list.  His presence will be sorely missed but his impact lives on in so many ways in Norristown and beyond. 


Vince’s passion was his Italian heritage.  Anyone lucky enough to taste his cooking would agree.  He was a member of many Italian-American organizations around the area and loved to participate in events honoring his Italian culture.  He enjoyed visiting Italy at any chance he could and carrying on and passing down the traditions of his grandparents to his daughters. Activities like Sunday dinner and his Christmas traditions will live on through his children and grandchildren.   


Vince was a 9th-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.  He was an avid golfer and spent as many sunny days on the golf course as he could.  Vince had a great sense of humor and a smile that could light up a room.  He will be missed by so many.
