David Matthew Marques passed away unexpectedly on October 28th, 2015 doing what he loved most.  His passing leaves a hole in our family that will never be filled, but we feel comfort knowing he will always be watching over and protecting each and every one of us.

David was born April 16, 1965 to Charles Fernandes Sr. and Sally Jane (Stark) Marques in Ely, Nevada.  David was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing, shed hunting and metal detecting with his family.

He was preceded in death by his father and is survived by his mother Sally Marques, his children (the pride and joy of his life) Matthew and Shania Marques, Fiancee (the love of his life) Ramona Maestes, brothers Charles (Delores) Marques, Alvin (Cynthia) Marques, Jim (Charity) Marques, Kim (Patti) Marques, sisters Juanita (Robert) Pope, Cindy Marques (Karl Hexem), Connie (Jim) Souza, Mindy (Mike) Pickel and a special nephew that was more like a brother, Trevor (Kourtnie) Marques.  He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews and many great nieces and nephews, all of which he shared a special bond with.

A Private Family Service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, a college fund for his children has been set up at Nevada Bank and Trust, 777 East Aultman Street, Ely, NV 89301.
