Our Dad - David Mercado Memorial Fund

Help bring our dad, the most genuine most humble man with the biggest most contagious smile and a heart of gold that knew only of abundance and giving to rest. He left this world on September 27th 2020 after being able to come home from a month away from his family in the hospital where he fought to come back home to us, he got to come home on the 26th and spend the day with his family a day we all needed very much and we treasure the chance to have been blessed with one last day. He leaves behind his 4 children Angelina(24), David Ray(18), Max(12) and Moses(6), his parents Enrique and Marianna, his loving family and wife of 20 years Angelica, all of which he loved to no end  and joins our sister Audrey in heaven.

For those that always had our dad in your thoughts and prayed for his recovery, thank you. Our own personal Macgyver and jokester always ready to pull us through any and everything with our laughter ringing along the way, a fighter  in his life and for his family giving us everything he had, every piece of him and then some.

Dad gets to be free now from pain, no straining, no need to fight day in and day out.  We like to believe he is happier and excited to get to finally be with his daughter who passed at birth again she would be 19 now.

We are asking for your help during these difficult times, the funds will be used for memorial expenses as well as  living expenses for the family he leaves behind

Though words seem to fail me one thing is for certain anyone that had the privilege of experiencing his energy will never forget him or his smile and we will forever miss and love him. Again thank you to everyone that was with us whether it was a visit a call or in thought and prayer. We know times are trying for everyone right now, we want you to know anything you are able to pitch in can help and is appreciated. 

Thank you all again for being with us.
