    Sending my deepest sympathy to you and your loved ones. I remember Louis from Marching Band, church confirmation and from the dental office and he did indeed have a big heart and a great sense of humor. I will be praying for all of you at this difficult time.

    Dino was a great guy, and a great friend. We’ll all miss him so much. His sense of humor was second to none. He was my “partner in crime”. My sympathy goes out to his family, and my prayers are with you. We are all better people for having known him.

    Zach and family, our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Dear Marrandino family,
    You are in our thoughts and prayers. We met Dino when we were involved in scouts quite a few years ago and instantly felt like friends. When Tyler told us he had made a new friend in youth group this year (Zach), I was happy to recognize the last name. Yes Zach, this is “Tyler’s mom”! Tyler said I confused you with my post on the Zion website so I wanted to fill you in. Take care of yourselves and take comfort in knowing you are being thought about daily. – Vicki Schenk

    I am so sorry to hear of ‘Dino’s passing. I was a friend of Dino’s that lived 2 houses down on Gary’s Mill Rd. in Winfield. I’m glad to hear that he was active in church and the community. My heart goes out to his family and I trust that God has sustained you through this difficult time.
