Mario affectionately known as Rollo was compassionate, loving, caring, respectful, and a true friend. He had a heart of gold and would give anyone the shirt off of his back. He truly missed his calling as a comedian for he always had a way of making you laugh by telling you a joke or by having a quick come back. In spite of their losing streak against the Buckeyes, Mario was a diehard Michigan football fan (lol).
On his journey, Mario always kept a positive outlook, he never complained about anything and he gave it a good fight!!
