Mario was born September 12, 1946, in Alamo, Texas to Catarino and Sista (De La Rosa) Palomo. He attended school in Donna, Texas.
Mario made a living working as a skilled mechanic and machinist the majority of his life. He was constantly fixing things or tinkering on a project until ill health limited his physical abilities.
He enjoyed camping, scenic road trips to south Texas, and working on cars. Mario was a proud father and grandfather, spending time with his family every opportunity he could. He was a jokester and liked making people smile. He will always be lovingly remembered.
