Dario was born May 20, 1970, in Fort Worth and attended St. Andrews Catholic School and Nolan Catholic High School, where he was active in hockey and Boy Scouts, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout. He then attended Texas A&M University and the United States Military Academy in West Point, N.Y. After graduating from West Point in 1993, he served for 10 years in the United States Army as an infantry officer with assignments at the 101st Airborne Division, 75th Ranger Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, and finally as a professor of military science at Texas A&M University. During his tour in Korea with the 1st Infantry Division, Dario met Ms. Kirstin Bakke, and they were married in Fort Worth on June 22, 2002. In 2006, Dario began his career with the State Department as a consular officer, where he was assigned to the Embassy in Saudi Arabia. During this assignment, Dario and Kirstin welcomed the arrival of daughter Jacqueline Arabella. His next assignment took the family to India, where they made many friends and welcomed the arrival of another daughter, Gianna Natalia. The family then returned to Texas and settled in Spring, where Lucia Aryanna was born. In 2011, Dario was posted to Afghanistan as a political officer. Dario is remembered as the most incredibly loving husband and father, a strong, compassionate and inspiring leader, a loyal friend, the best son and brother ever and a dedicated American and Texan. He lived his life in cheerful service...a true man for others. Dario was preceded in death by his mother, Joyce Bailey Lorenzetti. Survivors: He is survived by his wife, Kirstin; daughters, Arabella, Natalia and Aryanna; father, Olfeo Lorenzetti; sisters, Maria Lorenzetti Blazo and Elizabeth Lorenzetti Harvey; four brothers-in-law; a sister-in-law; five nephews; one niece; and many loving cousins, aunts, uncles and friends.
