Mario was the successful owner and operator of Wethersfield Shoe Repair on the Silas Deane Highway in Wethersfield for over 40 years. He was a member of the Italian American Star on Franklin Avenue in Hartford where he enjoyed going on Sundays to watch Italian soccer and play cards, especially “Scuba”. Mario was also an avid gardener and fan of the Italian Soccer League, and loved going to the beach with his wife and family.

Along with his parents, Mario was predeceased by two brothers, Salvatore Sequenzia of Wethersfield, and Sebastiano Mario Sequenzia of Italy.
