24 Jan 1916 - 4 Jan 2005

Villamarzo Lopez, Mario E., a 33-year, World War II U.S. Army veteran and father of four died on Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2005.

A resident of Sierra Vista, Ariz., for the past eight years, he was born in the family home in Ponce, Puerto Rico, on Jan. 24, 1916. One of 10 children of a Spanish immigrant, father Jose Villamarzo Lledin, and a Puerto Rican mother, America Lopez Pagan, he was 88 years old. He died at home with his eldest daughter, Gloria.

Mario's long life included many accomplishments, but the one he was most proud of was his marriage to el amor de mis amores - the love of his life, his friend, lover and partner for 62 years. On April 26, 1941, he married this young woman, a daughter of an evangelical preacher, Gloria J. Robles, who preceded him in death in May 2004. Of this union they had three children.

In the beginning of his long Army career he served with the Puerto Rico Army National Guard in the early 1940s. Later, during World War II as a member of the 65th Infantry Regiment he served in North Africa, France and ultimately in Germany as part of the Army of Occupation.
