Does anyone know what became of the head sandwich-maker (my title) at Sarcone's Deli?

Recently played Round 348 (of ∞ ) of the Favorite Philly Sandwiches game with some friends, and we were re-mourning the loss of Sarcone's Deli. As I remember it, all my best hoagies were composed by one guy - middle-aged, African American, usually wore a black bandana.

He was a master. If outstanding ingredients were the baseline at Sarcone's, his perfect proportioning of meats, cheeses, veggies, spices etc. were the melody.

I don't know who still pops in regularly on this Board. Sad to say, I do not. But if any of the old-time sandwich-heads are still around - does anyone know this guy or know if he's still making hoagies somewhere?
