Marcos Garcia, Jr., age 77, of Metamora, Ohio, entered into eternal life, Monday afternoon, June 24, 2019, in his home, surrounded by his loving family. He was born October 23, 1941 in Brownsville, Texas to Marcos, Sr. and Margarita (Rosas) Garcia. He was raised by Bernardo & Carmen (Rosas) Escamilla. On November 17, 1962, he married Florence Davila. Together they attended Holy Trinity Catholic Parish in Assumption.
Marcos worked as a welder and was a very talented craftsman and musician. His craftsmanship was superb. Whatever material he was working with, he would turn into a work of art. He especially loved working with wood and making furniture and beads for family and friends. He also made beautiful art glass. Marcos also played the guitar and accordion and had a wonderful singing voice.
Marcos will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 56 years, Florence; daughters, Rosa (Jose) Gonzalez, Laurie Garcia (Sylbestre Villegas), Margaret (Shane) Stark and Sheila (Don) Apple; son, Marcos Garcia III; 8 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; and his siblings, Julian Moreno, Refugia Moreno and Concepcion Rodriguez.
