Mario D’Errico



Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute

Mario D’Errico Greece: passed away on Friday, December 23rd, 2022 at the age of 71, surrounded by loved ones after a courageous battle with cancer. Mario was born on October 7th, 1951 in Cisterna, Italy and emigrated to the United States when he was 8 years old; he has called Rochester home ever since.  Mario was the oldest out of three boys in his family, with younger siblings Carmen and Frank D’Errico.  He was predeceased by father Fortunato, mother Lilliana, brother Carmen, and his fur-buddies Meesha and Juju. Mario is survived by his wife of 42 years, Jeanne D’Errico (Haughwout); his children, Marc D’Errico (Ariel Lehr) and Heather Sterner (Jason Sterner);his step-daughters, Michelle Alfieri-Hammell (Mike Hammell) and Kristina (Tina) Fahy; his granddaughter Berklee D’Errico; his brother, Frank D’Errico (Mary).  He is also survived by many “fur-babies” and “grand fur-babies” including Noah, Milo, Gracie, Romeo, Tibby, Max, Gus, Stormie, Otto, Joy, and Yogi.  Mario will be missed by all, and never ever forgotten. Mario was a veteran of the U.S. Air Force having served time overseas and recently completed his 40th year at Weyerhauser/International Paper.  He worked for Gannett Newspapers/Wolfe News for almost 40 years as well.  Mario was a staple in the Rochester bowling community for many years as a devoted coach and supporter to his children Marc and Heather.  Whether it was on the lanes or off, Mario was always willing to lend a hand or provide his coaching expertise.  The outpouring of support that the family has received since his passing shows just how many lives Mario has touched over the years. Friends may call Thursday (Dec 29th) 4-7 PM at Vay-Schleich and Meeson, 1075 Long Pond Road.  Private Interment, Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

    I can remember sitting and talking with Mario as he watched his son Marc bowl against my son Roger. Allow the parents would talk and give pointers to the kids. It was a good time and a great memory. Sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Mario is in a better place and will continue to be with you always in your hearts. God bless.

    I attended St. Michaels school with Mario, as well as Bishop Kearney. He was such a nice person. I will always remember how kind he was. I am sure he will be missed by all who knew him. My sincere condolences to his family. May you Rest In Peace my friend. Sincerely, Dorothy Helfer (Arcarese)

    I can recall numerous times we spent together……coaching our kids, talking about bowling and his coaching me. Mario was the one person I went to (infrequent as it was) to watch me and point out the little things that would need adjustment and make things better. He was always willing to chat and yak about bowling. I’m sure there were many other important things in his life (family to name one); however we shared a love of the game and I will cherish the times we spent together. God speed to Mario and peace to his family.

    I also attended St. Michael’s school with Mario. My childhood memory of him was his kind, quiet demeanor. It appears he was an extraordinary adult with all of his many accomplishments. My condolences to his family, friends, and fur babies. May God Bless Mario and Peace to his family. Christine Magliocco (Cummings)
