Attachments: 1. R2014-905.pdf
WHEREAS, God in His infinite wisdom has called Mario Bustos to his eternal reward; and
WHEREAS, The Chicago City Council has been informed of his passing by the Honorable Marty Quinn, Alderman of the 13th Ward; and
WHEREAS, A beloved husband and father, Mario Bustos of Chicago, passed away Thursday, October 16, 2014 at age 63. He was a grandfather, brother, uncle, Godfather, coach, mentor, volunteer, friend, and true asset to the Pilsen community. Born August 4,1951, Mario brings truth to the statement that "only the good die young." He spent many years as a board member of Harrison Park's Pilsen Athletic Conference, and even in retirement, went to work for the Union League Boys and Girls club. Mario worked hard to provide for his family, including as a valued City of Chicago employee through over 30 years of dedicated service. Mario was the devoted father of Anita and Erik and loyal husband of Renetta. His best friend was his granddaughter Trinity and his new pride and joy was (granddaughter) Amila. Mario had many talents, including cooking huge family dinners with a wide array of dishes aimed at luring family members into moments of togetherness. He loved many things, including shopping, and helping children and the community. Mario will be forever missed (even by his dogs Heidi and Tsunami), but his legacy endures through the many lives he touched and the lessons he taught. Mario Bustos leaves a legacy of faith, dignity, compassion and love; now, therefore,
BE IT RESOLVED, That we, the Mayor and members of the Chicago City Council gathered here this tenth day of December, 2014, hereby express our sorrow on the death of Mario Bustos and extend to his family and friends our deepest sympathy.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That a suitable copy be presented to the family of Mario Bustos. /^~^
