Marcus McNeil Hardin (29) of Bloomfield, NM passed away on April 25, 2023, in Bloomfield, NM. Marcus was born June 4, 1993, in Ganado, AZ to parents, Angel Hollister and Ronald M. Harding. Marcus was born to the Bitterwater, Salt, and Waters Edge Clans.
Marcus obtained his GED. He worked as an oilfield derrick operator, electrician's helper, an automotive lube tech, and a chef. He was an absolute MacGyver; he could fix ANYTHING and learn anything. He had an outgoing personality and a knack for making people laugh. He had a contagious smile. He was a fearless dare devil who loved to try new things and go on new adventures. He always helped others in need and was the mechanic. He was a proud father of two and beamed with pride and joy in their presence. In his younger years, he made the honor roll, participated in wrestling and danced as a grass dancer in pow-wows. He was, in a sense, a jack of all trades and was a very helpful guy.
Marcus is preceded in death by his father, Ronald McNeil Harding; his maternal grandfather, Harold Matthew Hollister; and his paternal grandfather.
Marcus is survived by his wife, Camery Delegarito; his son, Xaiden Blayze Harding; his daughter, Jayden Dee Harding; his mother, Angel R. Hollister; his brothers, Seth Howard Nunez, Jayvn Matthew Frank, and Colten Mayes Frank; his sisters, Audrey Kaye Nunez and Lylie Judzia Nunez; his grandmothers, Bertha Wilson and Mary Louise Harding.
