Marcos Mendoza, 46, left us on August 24 2018 at home, surrounded by his family.
Marcos was born December 22, 1971 in Laredo TX to Zonia and Ramon Mendoza. He was the middle child between Marissa and Melissa Mendoza. As a child, he would always enlist the help of Marissa to scare his older sister Melissa. With the direction of Melissa, Marcos and Marissa would perform for their parents. He had a love of music and playing the guitar. Marcos could pick up any instrument and make music flow.
Marcos spent a few years in Arizona to gain custody of his son. While there he worked various jobs and eventually won custody and returned to Texas. He went to Hallmark Institute and gained his Airframe and Powerplant Certification and worked for San Antonio Aerospace. In 2007 he met his now wife, Tamara, and they started their life together. He became a parent to Jonathan, Jennifer, and Jackie. His co-workers knew him as the jokester that always had a prank up his sleeve and an easygoing nature. His family knew him as the loving husband, father, son, and brother.
When diagnosed with terminal cancer, he never stopped fighting. Always accepting treatments no matter the side effect. Anything to give him more time with his family. Even when the doctors gave up, he still wanted to fight. His bravery and strength will always be remembered. He fought cancer until the very end, never accepting that one day he would be gone. He lived his life to the fullest, never afraid of anything. He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
