Don Mario started his own import export company, where he was CEO. His other job was a full time Rancher. He graduated from Martin HS, served in the U. S. Army and attended LCC where he studied Business Administration. He loved spending time at his ranch, dining at all of his favorite restaurants with his wife and family. He had a deep faith in God and instilled in his children and grand-children to love and honor God. He was a friendly, upright, and hardworking man of great character. Don Mario was charismatic and enjoyed conversations with his family, friends and other ranchers. His advice and words of wisdom were always uplifting and encouraging. His laugh was contagious.

I remember very vividly our trip to Guadalajara via Aguascalientes around 1992 … Mario had plenty of anecdotes and jokes… It took us several days to get there. It was a most enjoyable family trip talking and laughing non-stop! We had an unforgettable great time

Ale y Rolis No existen palabras para los que hemos pasado por esto. Siempre se sigue extrañando, solo se aprende a vivir sin su presencia física. Se batalla pero uno aprende. Todavía levanto el teléfono, esperando que me conteste. No es fácil. Siempre están en nuestros corazones. Siempre presentes nuestros papás. Ale chula, te mando un abrazo apretado con todo mi corazón. Mis condolencias para toda la familia. Alejandro y Loreily Sanchez Viesca
