HOF in Cleveland...nice!
Yankee fan...nicer yet!

What a wonderful man! Mario was always quick to greet me with a huge smile and a joke. Our prayers are with you, Georgio family.

Helen, Mary Ellen, Denise and Tom, We go a long way back all the way to East 117 street in Cleveland. What wonderful neighbors we had, especially the Georgio family. I can still hear that New Yawk brogue as they say. He will be missed but know you are all in my prayers. Love and prayers, Linda Mantz (Jakubecz).

Mary Ellen I was so sorry to hear of your Dad's paasing. I enjoyed his jokes and chatting with him. You will see him again. We know he is in heaven telling jokes making even the angels laugh. Love Sue Acob

My brother and I had the good fortune to know Mario and it was my honor to have played softball with him. He was to me a man among men, someone I will always remember with respect and admiration. My condolences to his family.

Mary Ellen, I am very sorry for your loss. From everything I've heard, your father was a remarkable man. I enjoyed the too brief time I spent with him, and wish I could have known him more.
Blessings always,
Tom Robinson

I was taken back when I learned of Mario's passing. He was always my favorite teammate when we payed softball together. I admired the way he loved his family and the way he was always ready to help someone who had a problem. Even though i haven't seen him in years, I always thought about him. May God bless him and your family.

Your Friend, Tony Morino


Mary Ellen, my most sincere and heartfelt regrets with the loss of your father. I did not know your dad, at least not cognitively. When I lived in Maple Heights I played little league baseball, my position was the catcher, so your dad may have been standing right behind me at home plate and I didn't know it. You probably don't realize it but your father was always a big part of you and still is today and will always be in the future, because for all the years I have known you I have...

so sorry .i have thought of mario many times over the years,always with a smile on my face.at little league we would try to get him excited just to get a reaction,which was always worth the effort.he would start trying to chase us speaking some foreign language,italian.when he caught us he would give us a knuckle-rub.we would all be laughing and having a great time.by the way when you played for mario you learned to become a better ballplayer and person.he will in my memory with a smile.
