I just learned today, that Mario has passed away. I share your heart ache and sorrow but at the same time I have such fond memories of our early years in Canada and our lively fun-filled picnics. Mario was always ready with a joke or amusing story.Time and distance keep people apart but the memories and love I have for Mario and you, Lisetta will always stay with me.

Sincerely, Loriana Allegrini Lee

Condolences from Tirelli family.

Rosie , you taught me a lot about people and machining.

I had the privilege of not only working with you ,Vic, Danita, Stevie and the rest of the gang that came to Canada in the 50's.

Your war stories will be in my mind forever, you were a tough guy and your talent at machining was quite spectacular. as was the guys in your clan that came to better this country.

I will always value your treatment of others and how much you enjoyed life.

One tough bird.

Thanks Mario and God's speed


Sorry for your loss

We are so sorry for your loss. Mario was a good man and always had a smile on his face and always managed to put one on others. He and my father immigrated to Canada together and years later I worked with him at Alcan. He always went out of his way to teach me all he knew. I could always count on him for help. He will be missed.
So much Love
