In memory of Mario Islas Vanek

Created by Family Of Mario Islas Vanek

Mario Islas Vanek

My son was a beautiful soul! Intelligent, caring, kind, compassionate, poet, high-school graduate. Unfortunately he had been addicted to dex for six years before his addiction finally killed him. He is missed more than words could ever say. I Love You Mario always and forever. Love, Mom

This Memorial was created to commemorate a loved one's life and to let other families know they can turn to the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids for help when struggling with their son or daughter's substance use. Please consider sharing this page to increase awareness of substance use disorders and to provide hope and healing for others.

Thank you for leaving a response to my sons memorial. It is still very heartbreaking. I wake up in the morning feeling like I got punched in the gut. the wind is just knocked out of me every morning. He was such a beautiful person. He had so many talents.
