Mario Fernando Roche-Camara
Mario Fernando Roche-Camara, 58, a resident of Lee County, FL for the past 21 years, formerly of Mexico, passed away Sunday, June 6, 2021 in Cape Coral, FL. He was born January 16, 1963 in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.
Mario was a member of City Gate Ministries in Fort Myers, FL. He was a faithful servant in ministries such as Caloosa Outreach and the bus ministry, as well as a volunteer on Sundays on the Media Team. Some of his greatest professional accomplishments include obtaining his Bachelor’s Degree in Civil Engineering and later his Master’s Degree in Environmental Engineering, both from Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán in Mérida, Mexico. He worked for 20 years at Cornerstone Builders of Southwest Florida in the CNC Department writing the computer programs for the CNC machine. He will be remembered as a hard-working, humble, gentle man of God who loved his family unconditionally. He lived a simple yet content life, enjoyed the outdoors, loved classical music, had a hunger for knowledge (literally a walking encyclopedia), and had a passion for math and science.
He is survived by his beloved wife of 32 years, Marcelina Roche of Cape Coral, FL; mother, Angelina Camara Lara of Mérida, Mexico; children, Maritza Roche of Cape Coral, FL, Mario Roche of Lafayette, LA, and Paola Melissa Pleasant (Joshua) of Cape Coral, FL; siblings, Juan Manuel Roche-Camara (Lorena) of Mérida, Mexico, Jose Miguel Roche-Camara (Teresa) of Mérida, Mexico, and Angelica Roche-Camara (Ruben) of Mérida, Mexico; several nieces and nephews; mother-in-law, Soila Aguilar of Mérida, Mexico, and father-in-law, Aquiles Martinez of Cancún, Mexico; grandchildren, Mila Rose, and Levi; as well as family pet, Jakobi.
