Marky Marks

BROWNSVILLE, TX. – On Saturday, the 15th of April 2023, Marky Marks passed away tragically in an automobile accident that occurred in Brownsville, Texas. He was twenty-five years of age.

From the moment Marky was born, he brought immense joy to his family. He would light up the room with his big, bright smile and bouncy curly hair. He would often make everyone laugh with silly jokes and dances. Marky also had his own independent style - and knew, from childhood, how he wanted to present himself to the world, a trait that would carry on throughout his life.  As a young man, Marky's adventurous spirit was evident. He developed a love for sports and being outdoors, especially skateboarding.  He would often be spotted around the best skating spots in town with his friends. He enjoyed bike riding and eventually started BMX, and worked hard to master all kinds of tricks. When he went on hikes with family, he always had to stand at the far edge to get the best view. He wasn't afraid to take risks.

After high school, Marky left to make a life in San Antonio, Texas. There, he developed his skills and knowledge of auto mechanics and eventually opened up a shop with friends. A generous person, he would often help people fix their cars and expect nothing in return. It was in San Antonio that he began taking his car drifting with an auto club, now called Suki Style in honor of Marky, and his skills really shined. He moved back to Brownsville in 2022, but would often return to San Antonio and had hoped to live there again one day. In Brownsville, he began purchasing vintage scooters and fixing them up. He could often be seen riding around with a posse of friends on their vintage scooters that he brought back to life. He also loved to take his dog Suki to the beach, to resacas, to the skate park. On his last day on earth, he enjoyed time at the park with Suki and laughed as she jumped into a resaca to chase some ducks. He knew how to enjoy the splendor of nature, the peace that comes from a simple breeze, and the beauty of a sunrise. "God has given us nature for us to enjoy," he told his mother on his last day.

Wherever Marky went, his joyful spirit was infectious. Described by friends as a "pure soul", he inspired many of them to be the best version of themselves. He was often encouraging his friends to never give up, never lose faith, look to Jesus Christ, be grateful for everything. He was deeply spiritual and knew that God was always with him. In the last week of his life, he told his mom that he felt his spirit at peace, that he was grateful to God for everything he had been through and everyone in his life.

If anything can bring his family peace, it is knowing that Marky truly lived his life to the fullest. He loved hard, worked hard, and knew how to have fun. His loving spirit impacted people far and wide and he will always be remembered for his beautiful smile and zeal for life.

Survivors include his mother, Maribel Olivares, and his step-father, Enrique Marks III; his father, Francisco Preciado; his siblings Richard Olivares, Jr., Jessica Dennes (Albert), and Enrique Marks IV; his nephew and niece, Albert Elias Dennes and Alina Marlen Dennes; his maternal grandparents, Lucio and Amparo Soto; his step-grandparents, Enrique Marks Jr. and Maria Marks; in addition to his numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.  He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Ana Maria Preciado.
