    My sympathies for Dio’s family. I worked with Dio at Matrix properties for five summers when I was in College. He was such a hard worker and always had good stories to tell. Matrix was lucky to have him. God bless Dio.

    I use to work with Dio for a short time at The Salvation Army Thrift Store in Moorhead, and found him a very interesting person, and also very enjoyable to have conversations with also. My sympathies goes out to his family.

    Dio will be missed, I worked with Dio
    for 15 yrs here at Stonebridge and he
    was always a great guy and you always knew you could count on Dio to get the
    job done on time , he took his work very seriously and always did a great job. His blue pickup driving through the lot here will be missed.The shrubs will
    never be the same, Dio trimmed them
    like a pro.
    God Bless you Dio,
