Condolence: I first visited Mario's sometime between 1968 and 1975 when my work commute took me past the shop. I took a few steps into the shop and decided when I heard CLASSICAL music, that it was the place for me. I was deeply saddened yesterday to learn that the illness I learned of on my prior visit had taken his life. I have read all of the condolences posted prior to mine and they all describe the wonderful man I was so privileged to know these many years. I am finding his loss to be as significant as the loss of a family member. It is with tears that I write this condolence. I wish I could give him a hug. Ed Tyrrell
Condolence: Mario always made me feel like part of the family which kept me coming back for the past 40 plus years. I was always amazed at how he would restart our conversation from weeks earlier and ask about my family members. I believe he truly cared about his customers and my condolenses to his family, I hope knowing we all cared about him is a small condolence in this difficult time.
Condolence: I just learned of Mario's passing yesterday when I visited the shop. He was a one-of-a-kind gentleman. Always one to lead with a joke, always one to make whoever was in that chair of his feel like friend almost instantly. He will be very much missed.
Condolence: I just found out this very sad news. I've gone to Mario's Barbershop for over 35 years. I started going there as a teenager and now my son and I go there together. This is a tremendous loss for the entire community. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.
