Mario was truly a great man. My husband, Mark, and I had the honor of knowing him through work. He was one of the most kind and respectful people that we have ever been graced to have known. We admired him for always maintaining a gentle demeanor, while expressing strong convictions over issues. He was a great man who made a strong, yet quiet footprint in this world. There is a lot to be said for that. Prayers to the family and Rest In Peace, Mario. You deserve it. ❤️ Susan and Mark Vitale
