I played darts at the American Legion with Mike. He was on my team. Mike was a hoot to play with. We joked with one another and busted each other's chops. Mike and I also tried to stump one another with trivia on the Phillies and Eagles. I will miss that.

I know Mike also worshipped his grandkids. He would always show us his phone videos of his grandkids and was so proud of them. He was always concerned about his wife's medical condition and was very happy when she was diagnosed as cancer free.

Rest in Peace Mike Marro. Would will always be one of the memorable characters I will remember in my life.

Connie and family,
We helped Mike with his glasses for many years. When he was in the store he always had a smile on his face. It was always good to talk to him and he will not be forgotten.
