Mario Topete

Mario TopeteIt was with great sadness that we received the news of the sudden passing of Mario Topete on 4 April, from, we are told, complications following upon removal of a chicken bone stuck in his throat. Mario, 58,  was our VIP interviewee in August 2013 and you can read more about him there. He was a valuable member in our community, involved in street improvements, cleaning, and generally promoting the town. He gave knowledgeable advice to many and greatly assisted Bill Grant in forming Amigos de Bucerias.

The funeral service was held on Monday 6 April at the Bucerias church in the plaza which was filled with family and his many friends, with Delegado Tony and Regidor Cristobal in attendance. Readings from the Bible were given by Miguel Angel the restaurateur, and Gaby Ulloa, and son Noel bravely gave an eulogy. Some of the music provided by the 9 piece mariachi band, pianist and singer was as a celebration of his life.  Mario is survived by his wife Sylvia, and their three children. Our sympathies are with them, the rest of his family and friends.
