Obituary for Mario Jose Macedo Rocha

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather, Mario Rocha. On January 26, 2024, with his family and best friend by his side, Mario was called home by the Lord where he was reunited with his mother, Fernanda Rocha, father, Fernando Rocha and treasured grandmother, Julia. Mario leaves behind his cherished wife of 39 years, Alda Rocha, his daughter, Julia Zaieter (Rocha), son in law, Mohamad Zaieter, his grandchildren, Yasmeen and Sophia Zaieter, as well as his childhood friend, Lloyd Butt. Mario will be missed by the many members of his family including his siblings and his many nieces and nephews.

Mario was born in Portugal and immigrated to Canada as a young boy where he worked diligently to take care of his family. Mario loved long drives, music and annual trips to Niagara Falls. In 1987, Mario began his career with the Windsor Essex Catholic District School Board, initially hired to fix televisions. As technology rapidly evolved, it created an opportunity for Mario to transition into the role of computer technician. He dedicated all of his spare time to learn everything there was to learn. Mario later retired from the school board as Network Manager.

In a word, Mario was selfless. His love for his family was the driving force behind all of his endeavors. Everything he did was out of care and compassion for others.

As a family, we express our heartfelt gratitude for your love and support during this difficult time. It was Mario's wish that a private service be held with cremation to follow.
