Marco Antonio Gonzales

Border Patrol Agent Marco Gonzales died after contracting COVID-19 while on duty at the Brackettsville Station in Brackettsville, Texas.

Agent Gonzales was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the United States Border Patrol for 15 years. He is survived by his wife, three children, and his parents.

Beginning in early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders have died as a result of COVID-19, and continue to do so as the virus spreads across the United States.

Thank you Agent Gonzales, and especially to your family, wife, children, and parents, for your service as a United States Marine Corps veteran and United States Border Patrol agent. I am retired law enforcement, served a tour of duty at Falfurrias, TX., and by the way I just love everything about the state of Texas, but cannot imagine what it must have been like working as an agent during the COVID pandemic. You are so brave and my HERO and the the HERO of many more for your dedication to duty. Just wish I had the chance to work with you. Wishing you rest in peace. My prayers tp your family. They deserve the best.
