Mario Fernando Roche-Camara

January 16, 1963 - June 6, 2021

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.

Mario was preceded in death by his father, Juan Gilberto Roche Rosas.

Memorial Services will be held at 2:00 PM EST. Saturday, June 12, 2021 at City Gate Ministries, 1735 Jackson St., Fort Myers, FL 33901 with Pastor David Pleasant officiating.

    Mario , mi querido cuñado siempre fuiste para mi un ejemplo a seguir por tu intachable forma de ser como esposo, padre de familia, hijo, cuñado, profesionista y sobre todo un gran ser humano . Recuerdo que siempre que platicaba contigo teníamos temas en común como los lenguajes de programación y cosas de ciencia, sin embargo nunca voy a olvidar el día que me dijiste también que lo primero que tenemos que hacer es estar cerca de Dios porque él es bueno y está con nosotros. Mi esposa y mis hijos también te conocían, yo les platicaba de ti, Marce y tú fueron nuestros padrinos de boda recuerdo perfectamente el día que ella y tú nos dieron su bendición al ponernos el lazo en la iglesia a isabel y a mi. Siempre te recordaremos con mucho cariño !!!
