Mario Rubio

Mario Rubio, Marco’s father, passed away tonight. Our sympathies and condolences to the Rubio family.

From Marco:

“My father knew hard work and struggle from very early in his life. His mother died when he was only 9 years old. The day after his mother was buried he went to work with his father and did not stop working until he was 78 years old.

“He was by far the most unselfish person I have ever known, always focused on others, and never on his own well being. He was especially determined to provide his children opportunities he himself never had.

“My dad worked as a street vendor, security guard, apartment building manager and crossing guard. But for most of his life he was a bartender, and by all accounts a great one. But his greatest success came from the two most important jobs he ever had: husband and father.

“He was very proud of my public service. And over the last 18 months he became an expert channel surfer, constantly searching for my next television interview.

“I was blessed to be raised by a world class father. And I thank God for allowing my father to live long and healthy enough to see that the sacrifices he made for us were not in vain.”

Cuba lost one more hero today in a man who sacrificed so that his family could live in freedom.

    • The Moneo family wants to express our deepest condolences to Marco and his family. It is always difficult to lose a father or mother, but know that the Lord has his father in his bosom.

  1. May Mario Rubio rest in peace in God’s glory. My prayers are with his family tonight.

    May Marco Rubio (and the rest of his family) find peace and strength in this very difficult moment knowing that God blessed him with a great father that sacrificed and worked very hard to provide for his family and also to ensure that one day his son would make the American dream.

    Mario Rubio accomplished those goals in his earthly life and now is at peace in Heaven.

    May he continue blessing his family from God’s kingdom.

  2. “I was blessed to be raised by a world class father. And I thank God for allowing my father to live long and healthy enough to see that the sacrifices he made for us were not in vain.”

    His son’s success and this moving tribute speaks volumes about Mario Rubio’s life.

    Godspeed, Mr. Rubio.
