Theo Marinescu

Born
Died

What I miss most about my son is his affectionate nature, his great sense of humor, and even the small things like hearing his feet bouncing up and down the stairs, the smell of his cologne—just everything about him. It hurts so deeply to think about him never again being here on earth to say "I love you Mom!" or for me to hug his sweet little neck and kiss his warm cheek.

Tell us about your loved one.

I lost my son, Theo, when he was 25 years old to a fatal combination of heroin and Fentanyl. I remember him as warm, open, loving, bright, intelligent and a very handsome man. He had a huge laugh and a fabulous smile. He was an outstanding athlete, with many trophies and awards. He played football and was a linebacker and this was the brightest shining star in his life. He was also very gifted intellectually being a honor roll student during his years in high school, but dropping college after first year. Theo was a fun-loving, free-spirited, beautiful son with a heart of gold and a contagious smile. He had a tattoo on his wrist that read “Just One Life ". He lived his life with wild ambition, no regrets. Theo always had a way to make you smile and laugh as he had a wonderful sense of humor. He was charismatic and wherever he went, he never knew stranger. He always made you feel welcome. He was a gifted storyteller and always an entertainer. He loved his little brothers with all his heart. He was a loyal friend to many.
