Marco is survived by his loving wife of 20 years, Angela Herrera; mother who loved him dearly, Eva Herrera; children whom he adored with all his heart, Alejandra Monique and Antonio Manuel Herrera; sister, Angela Romero (Ron); nieces, Angelica and Jaylynn Romero, who loved him very much; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces and brother and sisters-in-law.

He was strong and courageous. Marco battled an illness to the very end and never gave up the fight. He was surrounded by the love of his family.

Marco was a loving person, who had a big heart and always had plenty of love for everyone. He had a beautiful smile and always made people laugh. Marco was always so willing to lend a helping hand to anyone, even a stranger.

He enjoyed riding his bike. Marco rode miles and miles to spread cancer awareness. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed going hunting for elk and deer with his dad, brothers, uncles, nephews and friends. Marco was very talented and creative; he liked to build with wood and metal.

Marco loved riding his horse, Allegre. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father and friend. Marco was a beautiful human being, who brought joy to the lives of all that knew him. He will be greatly missed, but has left with us great memories that we shall cherish in our hearts forever.
