Mario Allen Albo Jr., named for his father, not only looked like his dad, he also had the same outgoing, loving personality. He touched everyone's heart with his giving and kind nature. He lit up the room just by walking through the door. He was a devoted father, son, brother, uncle and all around great friend to many. He enjoyed family activities, hanging out with his numerous friends but especially spending time with his 7 year old son. He was excited about his baby due in December with his girlfriend. Though we feel sadness at his passing we will continue to celebrate his life, remembering all the times we shared with him. His joyful laughter will continue to ring in our hearts….Til we meet again, our beloved Mario.
