My name is Mario Curtis Mondragon. I was born to my beloved mother, Lorie Shaleen (Thomas) Mondragon on Feb. 24, 1988. I left this world on Dec. 3. My heart is my most precious contribution to all of you. I love all of you more than you can understand now. “Thank you so much. I love every moment of it; all the roles I was able to act out with each of you in this life. I am always here. Always. Love.” Mario has returned to join his mother and other family members leaving behind his father Steven M. Rivera, brothers Travis Mondragon and Carlos Herrera, sisters Aleshea Mascarenas, Ashlee Rivera and Stefani (Rivera) Anderson (Texas), grandparents Loretta and Wayne Pralle and grandmother Rose Rivera. In addition, he left behind numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that were touched by the amazingly beautifully unique Mario. We miss and love you.

Funeral services will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ Skyline Ward in Tooele on Dec. 8 at 11 a.m. Internment will follow at the Tooele City Cemetery.
