Mario Asaro, age 87, of Eastpointe, passed away on Monday, October 2, 2017. Mario was born November 11, 1929 to Peter and Mary Asaro.

Mario’s magnetic personality drew everybody in, as those around him felt the warmth and love of his presence. He was an accepting man of everybody and he rarely complained. He’d find the humor in everything, even if his jokes were eye-rolling and corny, we laughed along with him. We had no choice as his smile and his laughter were contagious. His love for life, people, and his pride possession of his family, has left an eternal impact in the hearts and minds of those who knew him. He was always smiling and laughing, even right up until his departure from earth.

Mario was a hard-working man and his ingenuity and wisdom reflected on everything he did from wrenching on cars, to home repairs, to making wooden wishing wells. He worked every job imaginable and retired as a tool and die man. A jack of all trades, and master of all. He was never fearful to learn something new. He took pride in all he did, yet he remained humbled.
He has left an unbreakable legacy with the footprints he has left on earth. The impact he had will continue to illuminate the hearts and minds of all. He wanted nothing more out of this world than for people to be happy. In turn, that is what made him happy. No matter what footprints we all leave behind, we all can say that Mario had something to do with that walk. His spiritual being will live on within us.

Mario leaves behind his beloved wife of over 60 years Kathleen “Kay” Asaro.
