He was known to be very social and will be missed by many friends in Mansfield, North Attleboro, Cape Cod, Florida, and Europe, where he visited often. He loved boating, airplane flying, and the beaches on the Cape. He was fortunate to have enjoyed many cruise ship tours with his wife to many places around the world. Mario also had a passion for Jazz music, was an accomplished trumpet player, and played for various musical groups in Massachusetts as well as in Florida.
