On Friday July 16th Fil-Trek lost a very important member of our Team, Mario Pellegrino. 

Mario was employed at Fil-Trek for 16 years and over that time filled several roles at Fil-Trek, including staging, hydro testing, Quality Assurance and most recently Purchasing Manager.  His easy-going nature allowed him to fill various roles at Fil-Trek and was always willing to do whatever was asked of him.  It was in the purchasing role where Mario excelled and performed above and beyond expectations.  Mario was a very dedicated employee who was always working extra hours to ensure materials were purchased on-time.  Mario was always well liked by all co-workers, sub-contractors, customers, and suppliers as he had the ability to get along with everyone.  Mario always enjoyed discussing his family and outside interests, especially his beloved Montreal Canadians.  Mario’s missing presence at Fil-Trek cannot be replaced.

Mario’s family and Mario’s Fil-Trek family are all devastated by this sudden loss and we will all miss him dearly.

Mario I want to thank you for all the talks we had about our families , our work and how we could be better. You always showed me respect and kindness even when we were complaining about each other. I only knew you for 2 years but you made me feel like we were friends forever. Rest In Peace my friend

Mario, your presence at FIL-TREK and in this world will truly be missed. You are a soul that will not be forgotten here that is for sure. I still laugh at the time I did something stupid and you said something along the lines of "what kind of idiot does that?!" and I replied with "Me! I am the idiot" lol and we laughed and laughed about it for the rest of that day. Rest peacefully.


Mario, you'll be dearly missed. I appreciate everything you did to make me a better employee. From the constructive criticism to the good laughs. You will be missed but never forgotten. Until we meet again. Rest easy Mario.

Mario, I will miss all our arguments together and how eating salad was no good lol but we sure could eat up any sweets that came our way. I know your up there laughing at us, you will be missed but not forgotten. Nadia
