Marino "Mike" Rowland Fuentes

November 1, 1962December 11, 2019

Marino R. Fuentes was born into this world November 1, 1962 and left us on December 11, 2019.

Mike, as he liked to be called, was a loving father, husband, son, brother and uncle. He was a great friend. He would always take time for all. He would remember birthdays and special days for people. He loved to share music with his family. He would enjoy sharing flying with family and friends by setting up flights to take people up in the air on scenic flights. He especially liked flying over Lake Tahoe and enjoying its beauty.

Mike is survived by his wife, Cindy of 32 years: child, Lito; mother, Rosalind of Folsom; and parents, Marino and Elizabeth of Georgia; and brother, Doug; and many nieces and nephews. We will truly miss you Mike. May heaven be blessed with your presence.

Mike was our beloved nephew and cousin. He was a sweet soul and a caring, gentle person loved by all who knew him. He loved his family and friends. He also loved flying and was a fine pilot. We remember him as a curious little boy, a music loving teen, and a family man. Like all of us, he faced challenges in his life. We offered as much love and support as possible. We hope that he has finally found peace. We will never forget you, Mike, and we will always love you. Signed, Patricia, David, Ian, and Evan
