  3. I went to school with Mario at Aldine High School. He was a very kind hearted soul. Always a smile on his face. Rip in peace my friend.

  4. Mario was “Big Daddy” to all of us that worked with him for years at GPC. I worked with and knew him near 20 years. I am pleased to count him as a great friend and one of the nicest people I ever knew. We stayed in touch and I miss him greatly. Love ya Big Daddy!!

  5. Mario,
    Man it hurts to not be able to say goodbye my friend. I remember you always talking and laughing so much. You really were a very sweet and sincere friend. You never cut corners on any installs or projects that we were on together. We had so many laughs. You taught me a lot and I am thankful for you. I wish I could see you one last time. But unfortunately I am fighting this omicron crap. I love you man.
