Mariano (Mario) Java Sandoval, 82, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on May 11, 2020.  He was born July 26, 1937 to Aurelio and MariaLuz (Jave) Sandoval in Berclair, TX.  He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Alice (Rodriguez) Sandoval; 2 brothers, Refugio and Juan Sandoval; and sister, Rosa Sandoval.  He is survived by his children, MariAnn (Valentin) Garcia, Javier Sandoval, and Cecilia Sandoval; grandchildren, Nicaela, Sergio, Marcos, Tino, Vanessa, Alyza, and Aracelli; brother, Guadalupe Sandoval; 5 sisters, Evinia Zarate, Manuella Ordonez, Maria Sandoval, Carmen Sandoval, and Amelia Sandoval; and numerous nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.  He worked for, and retired from, the Lansing School District.

Mario was a fan of all sports, but especially his Tigers and his Spartans.  He also enjoyed his Tejano music, and especially loved his local musicians here in the mid-west.  The pastimes he loved the most were to visit the casino, family gatherings, and drink a cold Miller Light.  Mario will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved him.
