Mario Ronald Villamor died unexpectedly at his home on May 29 in French Camp, CA at the age of 76.

Mario is survived by his son, Michael (Kathy) and grandson Grayson, of Lake Forest, CA, and his sisters Yolanda Serrano (Peter), Armida Gilbert (George), and Letty Balderas (Robert), all of Stockton, CA. He is preceded in death by his parents, Eugene Villamor and Carmen T. Villamor, sister Camilla Villamor, and brothers Eugene, Jr. and Armando Villamor.

Mario was born on July 17, 1942 in French Camp, CA to Eugene and Carmen. He graduated from Sacramento State in 1970 with a BA degree in history. He married Janice Masotti in 1971. After moving to Sacramento, he held various positions with the State of California. The couple welcomed Michael into their home in 1972. Michael credits his dad with providing him a love for education and academics early on in life. Michael remembers his dad as a generous, kind and loving person who encouraged him to pursue his goals and provided all means of support to do so.

Mario was an avid reader and lover of philosophy with a passion for teaching. He also was an exceptional amateur Golden Gloves boxer in his youth. Mario and his son shared an affinity for the San Francisco 49ers, Sacramento Kings and San Francisco Giants. The two shared many wonderful moments at collegiate and professional sports events, including boxing matches at Arco Arena. Later on in life, Mario became a follower of the Catholic Church.

Dearest Michael, Yolanda, Armida & Letty:
Caroline and I send our deepest and sincerest condolences on the recent passing of your dad and brother.
As a cousin to Mario, I'm forever thankful that he was a part of my life. I will miss his warm and welcoming ways from all the family gatherings. I still remember when he and Uncle Gene used to stop by our house in Oakland when they were involved in boxing. Mario was always my "brave and courageous" cousin. My fondest memories extend to the entire family that whenever we got together - anywhere, it was always a great time! Still is, even though the circumstance for the gatherings has varied.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

Steve, Caroline & the Lopez family
