Mario and his first wife, Thelma arrived in the United States in January, 1970 pursuing their American dream. Here, they completed their educations, practiced medicine, traveled together and developed a deep love for America. In 1993, they made their home in Stilwell, Kansas. After Thelma passed away in 2007, Mario married Portia of Malabon City, Philippines in 2009. As a loving husband, Mario enjoyed providing for Portia and taking her on many road trips and adventures throughout the United States. Together, they regularly attended the SouthWoods Christian Church in Stilwell, Kansas and also showed generosity and support to their home church, Malabon Community Church in the Philippines.

Kuya Dr. Mario, from the first day that I met you. I knew you’d be my Friend. I knew that I could count on you, No matter what life sends.
You always have time to listen and time to give & share; By all your words and actions, you show you really care. You are very special it shows in all you do. I’ve found a special friendship, And I’ve gained a brother too. As a brother, you are great. As a friend, you are the best. To have you in our family Makes us all so truly blessed. We love you & we will miss you kuya Mario.

Uncle kuya Dr. Mario Marcelino I think of things you used to say and all that you would do. At some point, every single day, My thoughts will turn to you. To lose you was a bitter wrench, But you did not go alone, for part of us went with you. This is a very sad time for me, So I try to remind myself of the happy times we had. You left us beautiful memories. Thank you so much all the things you did for me & to our family uncle Mario. We love you & we will miss you uncle kuya dr. Mario.
