Donald “Don” Mariano, 67, a resident of Schaumburg for 28 years and former resident of Water Tower Place, Chicago, was born on August 17, 1948 in Chicago to the late Mario and the late Isabel (nee Taglisferri), and passed away suddenly on September 2, 2015 at his home in Schaumburg. Don was an avid Chicago sports fan, especially of his beloved White Sox. He was a loving husband and dedicated father, a great storyteller (despite his exaggerations) and regarded as a gentle giant by all.
He was the adoring husband of 31 years to Christy (nee Washburn); loving father of Melanie and Mario; fond grandfather of Christian Gross; dear brother of Chris (Dennis) Zarembka and Patty (Jim) Boguslawski; beloved uncle of Dennis, Tricia, Lori and Jim; and dear friend to many. He will be missed by all those whose lives he touched including his dogs “Cleo” and “Pip”.
