A tribute to Mario Sartori – article in the Trentham Trumpet by Corinne Gurry:

VALE MARIO SARTORI – It would be fair to say that most people living in the district have a story to tell about Mario. And all of them will be about his kindness and generosity. Mario never wanted people to know that it was he who had provided money for someone in need; nor did he want thanks for his many kindnesses. He was a robust member of our community, always with a story of his own to tell, a joke, or a hello. His fundraising efforts are legendary. His kindness and willingness to help is legendary. He never sought credit for the work he did in the community, and was humbled when he received his AOM.

As we all know, Mario’s funeral was private with only his family attending. So it was with this in mind; that the students of Lilac Moon Tai Chi School, headed by Patricia Kent, practised a special class by the lake at the Reserve on Friday afternoon.
It was a silent and beautiful tribute to a man who has given so much to so many.

We have lost one of our elders, who above all else, taught us humility.
