Mario Joseph Luperi

December 01, 1927 ~ October 12, 2022

 Mario Joseph Luperi of Vero Beach, Florida passed away October 12, 2022 at VNA Hospice House in Vero Beach, Florida.  He was born in West Wyoming, Pennsylvania, the third oldest of four children of Luigi and Marina Luperi along with siblings Lena, Pepe, and Dino.

He attended West Wyoming High School from 1941 to 1945 and served in the United States Army from 1946 to 1948.  After leaving the army, he graduated from Pennsylvania State College in 1952 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering.

He married Alma Marguerite Petrocchi of Exeter Pennsylvania on June 27, 1953, and they briefly lived in Lodi, New Jersey before moving to Randolph, New Jersey where they spent the majority of their lives, raising two sons.  He worked for Reaction Motors, Morton Thiokol, Steinen Manufacturing Company, and Picatinny Arsenal.  He was a member of the Roman Catholic faith, and served as an Usher for over 20 years and was an avid wrestling and football fan.  He and his wife moved to Vero Beach, Florida in 2019. They also enjoyed traveling throughout the United States and visiting relatives in Italy.

He is survived by his wife Alma of 69 years, son Robert and his wife Barbara of Vero Beach Florida, son Ken of Long Valley, NJ, and grandchildren Kimberly, Christopher, and Maxwell.

Arrangements are under the direction of Millennium Cremation Service, Sebastian, Florida.  Condolences may be shared online at

I grew up – from the age of 5, until I left home for college – with neighbors Mario and Alma Luperi. The Luperi’s were close friends of my mom and dad, Gerry and Patrick Esposito of Stonehill Road in Randolph. I’m saddened to hear of Mario’s passing. He was a wonderful gentlemen: intelligent, wise, thoughtful, and kind. I recall Alma and Mario having great fun with my folks on holidays and dinners together. My deepest sympathies to Alma, Bob, Ken, grandkids and all who had the pleasure to know and love Mario. His longevity is a testament to good living and enjoying life fully. I will miss knowing he is no longer in this world, but do hope Alma and all find peace in his memory.

Barbara, Bob, Alma & family, please accept our condolences on the passing of your dear father. We have known Mario for many years and always enjoyed visiting with him at your home. He was so pleasant, quietly joking and talking with us and enjoying any family event. He will be missed.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
