Mr Marcario was my football coach in 1969-1972
at the SIBFL. As a child I remember him very well as a gentlemen but a tough football coach. From time to time I look at the team pictures from those years and I remember the good old times. Rest in peace coach and I will always remember you.

Dear Aunt Ro and family, we were sorry to hear of Uncle Larrys' passing. He was such a loving family man. Hopefully the love he gave so generously will give you comfort in the weeks ahead. Thinking of all of you. Nancy & John Healy.
