Mario Delmonico Giovanni Boni
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. — Mario Delmonico Giovanni Boni, 23, of Los Angeles, Calif. died from injuries sustained in an automobile accident on Friday, Dec. 28, 2012.
Beloved more than one can imagine by his family and friends, Mario was too valuable and wonderful a young man to have left us so soon. He was a loving person who was loved by everyone who knew him.
Born in Santa Monica, he grew into adolescence in Los Angeles, and then moved with his family to Montreal when his father received employment as a writer in Canadian television. He and the family moved to Durham in 2003, where he attended Jordan High School and completed his high school degree at Durham Technical College.
He then went to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the music business, receiving his certificate in the UCLA program of recording arts. He struggled there, but was happily doing what he loved most – making music. It was his passion, Brian Wilson his god. He loved the New York Giants and loved to laugh, believing that “funny trumps all.”
He came to Durham to spend Christmas with the family. His time here, as short as it was, gave us all great joy and satisfaction.
His friends and colleagues both here and from Los Angeles are with us to say that in his short time on earth he captured so much magic that it illuminated all around him.
Mario is survived by his parents, John and Donna Boni of Durham; his sisters, Sasha Hoffman and husband, John, of Fairfax, Va.; and Gabrielle Boni of Greensboro.
Funeral Services will be held 2 p.m. Thursday, January 3, 2013 in the Chapel of Hall-Wynne Funeral Service, 1113 W. Main Street, Durham.
Friends may visit from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at Hall-Wynne Funeral Service.
