Mario A. De La Torre
April 27, 1927 – April 11, 2018
Mario Anastacio de la Torre peacefully passed away Wednesday April 11, 2018 in his daughter’s home in Henderson, Nevada at age 90. He was born in Cuba on April 27, 1927 and grew up in Majagua, Cuba with his father, Roque de la Torre; mother, Maria Rodriguez; along with his 5 brothers: Ramon, Miguel Angel, Wilfredo, Roquito, and Rafael; and his 5 sisters: Herminia, Carmen, “Beba”( Irma), Magdalena and Esther.
Mario, a small business owner, fled communist Cuba with his family in 1968 in order to provide them with a better life and opportunities. He had a long career as a blackjack and roulette dealer in Las Vegas, Nevada. He settled with his family in Southern Nevada since 1970. He was a parishioner of Holy Family Catholic Church in Las Vegas and St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church in Henderson, Nevada.
Playing dominoes and watching boxing and baseball were among his favorite pastimes, but he mostly enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. Despite being a quiet man, his words were always wise and his smile gleamed with happiness when he was with his grandchildren. Everything he ever did was for his family, as he was an extraordinarily selfless man.
Mario is survived by his wife of 67 years, Maria Josefa; son, Mario; son, Gilberto and his wife Mayda; daughter, Maria del Carmen Stockbridge and her husband, Craig; daughter-in-law, Silvia; 5 grandchildren: Mario de Jesus, Erika, Jennifer, Garrett, and Paul; along with great grandchildren, Bianca, Brandon, and Nicholas.

Quedo de acuerdo con la observación de tus nietos Jenny y Paul, que si no hubiese sido por ti, nuestras vidas hubiesen sido totalmente diferente. Yo sin un esposo como cultivaste para mí, y este sin el legado más lindo que deja el hombre. Sus hijos, y los hijos de sus hijos.
__Fiel descansa al pie de nuestro creador y fiel espera nuestra bendita reunión.
