I'm very sorry for the loss of one of the nicest guys I've known in my life. Alan and I worked in the same areas of the mill at STC for most of his 30 years at the plant. He's been in my prayers for quite a few years with all of his health issues. I now pray for his soul, and for the healing of his loved ones. RIP my friend.

Mauro (Mario) DiLorenzo, of Bechtelsville

Mauro (Mario) DiLorenzo, of Bechtelsville, PA, passed away on Monday, June 8, 2015.  He was the husband of Regina (Verna) DiLorenzo, the Father of two children, Vincent and Catherine, and a beloved Grandfather of Edith, Corinne and Vincent Sawyer.  Mario is survived by many cousins, nieces, nephews, and devoted friends and will be lovingly remembered by Regina’s many brothers and sisters.

Mario was born on April 29, 1948 in the Bronx, NY, the only child of Vincent and Virginia DiLorenzo.  He graduated from St. Helena’s High School and owned a business that specialized in the manufacture of medical research equipment.

Mario celebrated his Italian heritage and felt a deep love for his wife, Jean, and their family.  He had a generous spirit and offered help to many neighbors, friends and family whenever he sensed their need.  He was passionate about hunting and enjoyed the sport, the adventure and the challenge. Mario fulfilled his and his Father’s dream when he was able to build a camp in the woods in New York State, where he enjoyed being in nature and teaching his grandchildren to also appreciate the outdoors.

Mario and Jean met in Sea Isle City, NJ, where Mario had a large, extended Italian family, originally from Ponza, Italy.  They married, moved to the Bronx, then settled in Berks County in 1975, where they raised their children and contributed to the Bally community.  He was proud of his children, Vince and Cathie, and their many accomplishments and believed his dreams had come true when he was blessed with three wonderful grandchildren. 

Mario was always eager to discuss and debate issues of our time and how they related to history.  He was passionate about freedom, family and love of both.
