Livio was more than a friend, he was family. Since meeting Livio, and then being introduced to his wife Pat, my life has changed. Livio opened up opportunities for people through his special ways of communicating. No one was ever a stranger in Livio's eyes. He practiced and communicated the gospel message daily in all he did and shared. I have special memories of Livio on cruises, in my office with his dog Mia, and at Pat and Livio's home in MIchigan. Livio wanted to share his life with others and always was available to talk and to listen and to share his friendship with each of us who were lucky enough to know him. Livio will be more than missed, however, I know that the best way to honor him is to emulate his behavior and offer friendship and a helping hand with his characteristic "twinkling eyes" and truly know that the world is a better place because he taught us how to make it so.

Livio was one of my best friends in the World. I traveled to Italy two times and many other places in the world with him and Pat, his wife, who was a travel agent. Livio and Pat were my neighbors beginning when they moved to Benton Harbor. Livio was a special caring and giving friend. I grieve his loss, but celebrate his special life with Pat, their sons, family and countless friends. I cherish his memory.
