Our dear, sweet Marcos unexpectedly became our guardian angel on July 9th, 2020. He was born to Maria Angelina Mendoza and Carlos Valero on August 25th, 1988, in San Diego California.
Marcos and his family moved to Salt Lake City in August of 1996, where he would soon meet his Jr. High Sweetheart Heather at Eisenhower Jr. High in West Valley City. They were married October 22nd, 2008 in Salt lake City. They then spent the next 21 years building a life together that they both cherished until the very last moment of his life. They had two beautiful children together Elycia (2008) and Kingston (2014) who he loved and adored endlessly. Marcos loved sports, cooking and fast cars. He loved to spend hours in the kitchen cooking with his daughter and trying new recipes they made up together. He loved watching football and playing Hot Wheels with his son. He was a devoted Raiders and Lakers fan (yes, even Lebron). He worked for UPS for 13 years while continuously working a second full-time job that varied throughout the years.
Marcos is survived by his Wife Heather; their two children, Elycia and Kingston; and the family pitbull Lizzy. His Mom Maria and sisters; Karla (Jesus), Susan (Anthony), and Dianna; along with 13 nieces and nephews who adored him dearly and called him Tio Oso. Marcos also leaves behind many friends & family that will miss him dearly.
