"Marcos was a true friend, always happy and always had a way to make you laugh no matter what the situation. He is very missed."
Shawn Vandergoot of San Diego, CA

"Marcos was a GREAT friend who I met when I was 13. I remember my dad giving me the OK to drive Marcos down to the DMV and letting him use our family car to take his driver's license test. Two weeks later he came down from MCAS El Toro with a beat up yellow bug that we went everywhere in.
I miss Marcos and his sense of humor.
I'll never forget you bro"
