  1. We are so sorry to hear the passing of Gene Mariani. When we came to Saint Louis he was extremely helpful and made us feel at home in the Italian -American community. Knowing him was a real honour for us. We’ll never forget his kindness and humanity.

  2. My love and condolences go out to the family. Mr. Mariani was a wonderfully cultured renaissance man who could hold fascinating conversations on a wide variety of topics: art, music, politics, Italian culture, and life in general. I already miss him. May he rest in eternal peace. I will include him and his family in my prayers along with so many wonderful people who have gone before us.

  3. Gene was a SLUH Class of 1950 classmate and lifetime friend of my husband, Don Shea. I last saw Gene at Don’s funeral on Sept 23, 2023. We also were blessed to have known and worked with his father, Gino, who was a charmer like Gene.

    My sympathy to Gene’s family.

  5. Gene touched the lives of so many people not only in St. Louis but around the world. He inspired and encouraged others in their studies and endeavors, and was very proud of his Italian heritage and being honored by the Italian government with the Order of Cavaliere, Italian Knighthood.
    He was my mentor and friend, and I will always remember him.
    Va, stimato Cavaliere, sull’ali dorate.

  6. I only recently found out about Gene’s passing. He and I were in the same water exercise class for several years, but I hadn’t seen him since the pandemic. I have very fond memories of him teasing me about my name being an inspiration for Italian poetry. Last week I saw a reference to Plutarch and his muse, Laura, in a mystery novel set in Venice, and it conjured up sweet memories of the laughs we had. I just wanted to share that I will remember him fondly.
