Marco was born in Grand Junction CO to Pauline Marie Garcia. He went to school in Delta and graduated high school in 2008. Marco was employed for several years delivering prescription medications to Nursing homes. He moved on to work for K & K Concrete for 9 years.  Then following his Pops on a new journey with 10 Point Concrete.

Marco was full of life and was fueled by the outdoors especially on the Gunnison River, Confluence, and the Grand Mesa. You could always find him fishing, camping, four wheeling and hunting with family and friends.  He always had a passion for anything mechanical especially if he had an engine and would fix anything since he was young (with assistance from his Pops and Uncles of course), but among all was his Pride and Joy his truck.  He would spend endless hours searching online for upgrades to install on his Ford F-350

Throughout the years Marco followed many players through different Sports teams like the Colorado Rockies but one team you know he’d never miss a game for was for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Even as Marco was laid to rest he continued to be selfless by being an Organ Donor. As many of you knew Marco always wanted children of his own but was unable to. Children’s Hospital had a very special child in need and would be receiving Marco’s heart, and we feel this is God’s way of fulfilling that. There was no stranger to Marco, as he would give you the shirt off of his back and give every last dollar to anyone in need especially to his loved ones. We have been blessed by Marco’s presence in our lives and he will always be remembered by us.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Taylor Funeral Service and Crematory.
