Just want d to take the time to express my condolences to one of my greatest racing heros and one of the nicest and most genuine human beings I have ever met!

Their marriage was a strong one that began in 1961 and has endured the test of time. I remember watching an interview with Mario and Michael some 25-ish years ago, maybe more) where they were talking about their passion for motorcycles and especially their love for their ZX7’s and they asked Dee Ann how she felt about is and she said something to the affect of wishing they wouldn’t ride on 2 wheels but it makes them so happy and they get to spend more time together and that ultimately made her happier than if they’d yielded to her preference for them not to ride.

That speaks to the person she was and it was always quite apparent how much her and Mario loved one another.

My thoughts are with the Andretti’s in this difficult time. May Dee Ann Rest In Peace.

How terribly sad. Peace and condolences to Mario in particular, plus Michael, Jeff, and Barbie and the whole Andretti family.

This is sad news; my condolences to the family.

On seeing Placid's picture, I can see the same expression and smile as I remember Michael beaming up to the grandstand at Francorchamps '93, on hearing his name being called.

Mario posted this a couple days ago on his Twitter feed...

“God gave me an angel in my wife Dee Ann. After 57 years with me, God had a greater need for an angel in heaven & called her home on July 2. While it feels like the wheels have come off the family, your condolences will truly help us get them back on. Thank you all so very much”
