Marino Guzman, age 90, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on September 14, 2017.
Marino was born in Mexico. He is survived by his loving wife: Maria Gueta Guzman of over 50 years of marriage and his dear children: Julia, Marino Jr., Rafael and Richard. Proud grandfather of 6.
He was a man with strong ambitions; when he was a young boy at the age of 15, he spoke to his children about his first trip to this country; It left a lasting impression. He realized that this was a place where he knew one day he would return. This would influence his future decisions. As he began to form his family he would immigrate to the USA to establish roots, which eventually landed him in Chicago. He would live in Pilsen for almost four decades. He gave his family a path to success. He enjoyed going to McDonald’s every morning when he was retired and ordering his favorite: two apple pies and coffee for over 25 years. He will be missed.
