Passed away unexpectedly on May 10, surrounded by his loving family.
Predeceased by his parents Pedro and Primitiva, and brothers Doming and Berting. Mario will be lovingly remembered by his wife Virginia, children Tina (Jeff), Annabelle (Darcy), Jimmy (Maiko), Leslie (Nathaniel), and Jennifer (Christopher), and grandchildren Brianna, Noah, and Leyna. He also leaves behind his sister Pacita, Corazon Erestingcol - whom he always regarded as a second sister - and her family in California, and all his extended relatives here in Vancouver, including the families of Paring Soriano, Etong Suratos, Danny Suratos, Josephine, Aileen and Alberto. Mario will also be remembered by his extended family in the Philippines, and many cousins, nephews, nieces, compadres, co-workers, and friends.

Mario received his training at the U.S. Naval Base in Subic Bay, Philippines, and worked for 40 years as a Journeyman Red Seal Machinist. He had a zest for life and a passion for learning, which lead to a side career as a financial advisor. He spent his days going to the gym, playing golf with his buddies, and having coffee with the Oakridge crew. He and his wife Virgie enjoyed the freedom that retirement provided to go for soup at the casino whenever they wanted. We will always remember Mario as our Atog, an open and generous man, who enjoyed a good laugh and a nice drink. He will be in our hearts forever.

Prayers will be said Friday, May 20, 7:00 pm at St. Andrew's Parish, 480 East 47th Avenue, Vancouver, where Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Saturday, May 21, 12:00 pm. Fr. Vincent Nguyen, celebrant. Interment to follow at 1:30 pm at Ocean View Funeral Home, South Mausoleum, 4000 Imperial Street, Burnaby. Online condolences to the family may be made in the space below.

"It has been 52 days since Mario passed away. We are still in disbelief, in denial and finally healing for Mario's untimely departure. He has been a good..." Arthur Trinidad (Vancouver, BC)
