He spent many family parties and Saturday nights BBQing and cooking chicken in “el disco”.  He never hesitated to help anyone who needed it.  His children were his world, especially his grandchildren, who affectionately called him “Papa Coo”. He was also a loving “Tio” to many nieces and nephews.

Marcelo is united in eternity with his Loving wife Sandra, as well as many loved ones. He is survived by his sons Gabriel (Heather) of Salinas, Julian (Heaven) of Saint Paul, Marcelo (Leslie) of Saint Paul and daughter Felisa (Roger) of Salinas,  8 grandsons, 3 granddaugters, numerous nephews, nieces and loved ones.
