Middleton - Mario J. Prindiville, age 45 of Middleton, was called home on Friday, May 12, 2017 at his home due to heart complications. He was born on January 23, 1972 in Madison, the son of Charles Prindiville and Rita (Kuenzi) Prindiville.

Mario had a heart of gold and a smile that could light up a room. He was an avid reader and a history buff. Mario worked for Quality Tree Service for his father for years. He loved anything that had to do with World War II. He loved Etta James and Ryan Bingham (Southside of Heaven, Rather Go Blind and Weary Kind). He had a contagious laugh and great sense of humor. Mario also enjoyed riding his Harley with his brother. Most of all Mario enjoyed his role as a stepfather.

Mario was survived by his father, Charles Prindiville; grandmother, Helen Sanftleben; brother, Dustin; sisters, Michelle and Ashley; sister-in-law, Courtney Branstetter; nieces, Amanda and Nataesha; nephews, Jackson, Larry, Delon and Montez; aunt and uncle, Ken and Angie Kopp (Laura and Kenny); aunts, Londa (Krista, Sascha and Little Grant), Laurie (Ashley and Erica); step-children, Tyson, September and Calub; uncles, John and Tim Prindiville; and favorite Uncle Rich Cuccia; cousin, Sheila (Gordon) Woley and family; best friend, Mike Wernecke; and good friends, Graham Gehin and Kevin Varnes; and a special friend that was so dear to his heart, Sheri.

Mario was preceded in death by his mother, Rita Prindiville; grandmother, Patricia Prindiville; grandfathers, James Prindiville and Wilbert Kuenzi; great aunt and uncle, Bernie and Mary Feltes; uncles, Jeff and Allen Kuenzi; and little sister, Courtney Anna Marie (Prindiville) Kuenzi.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, May 26, 2017 at CRESS FUNERAL HOME, 3610 Speedway Road, Madison, with a visitation from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service.

Frayne Born on May 24, 2017

A limb has fallen from the family tree. I keep hearing a voice that says, Grieve not for me. Remember the best times, the laughter, the song. The good life I lived while I was strong. Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you. Keep smiling and surely the sun will shine through. My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest. Remebering all, how I truly was blessed. Continue traditions, no matter how small. Go on with your life, don't worry about falls. I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin. Until the day comes we're together again.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very sad time. Frayne (Gehin) Born

Toby Berg on May 23, 2017

I loved and respected this man. We became very close friends, over the past few years. I will miss him, more than most. We got together often, and always had a great time when we did. He was a friend that would go to the end of the earth, for anyone he cared about, regardless of the consequences. He loved his girlfriend, and her daughter, and would've done anything for either. I personally will feel like a piece of me, is missing, without him in my life. Nobody would have your back, more than Mario. My heart has ached, everyday, since l heard the terrible news. If there is ANYTHING his family needs, please don't hesitate to ask. I couldn't miss him more, of l was family. Love all of you, who loved him like l did. I will mourn with you, always.

Mike McGarrity on May 23, 2017

Chuck and Family, I am so sorry to hear about Mario. I saw him about a month ago and we talked for quite a while. I hope you know that he loved and appreciated you very much! His exact words were - "nobody has done more for me than my Dad". He said that he knew he could be difficult but that no matter what you always had his back. I hope you find some comfort in that. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.

Mark Johnson on May 22, 2017

Chuck - Dede, Mary and I have made a donation to Middleton Outreach Ministry in Remembrance of Mario. So sorry for your loss.

DAN MEIER on May 21, 2017

Chuck and family, I'm so sorry for your loss of Mario.... Nothing can hurt so much as the loss of a child... Know that you and your family are in my thoughts Chuck.....

Richard Boehnen on May 21, 2017

Hi Charles, Sorry for your loss. As I was reading about Mario I was shocked to read that Rita, Jeff and my friend Al are no longer with us. We know the pain of losing a child as we lost our son in 1990 due to a accident. We will be praying for you and your family that God gives you peace to you and your family. Say hi to Angie for me.

Brent Neumann on May 19, 2017
