Mario will be remembered for his wit and humor.  Mario left a lasting impression on those who knew him. Mario was a loving father, son, brother, uncle and friend. He was always quick to aid those who were in need. 


Mario was a kind and loving man with many amazing talents. He loved drawing, camping, fishing, skateboarding and most of all spending quality time with family and friends.
