Marco was born on September 5, 1953 in Des Moines, one of two sons born to Joseph and Betty (Cardemone) La Cava. He grew up on Des Moines’ Southside with his cousins and was a proud “Southsider”. Marco graduated from Lincoln High School in 1971. He proudly served in the Air National Guard, retiring as a Master Sergeant. Marco worked in the coffee industry for Davey Coffee and McGarvey Coffee. He retired from Sara Lee in 2010. Marco’s employment required extensive traveling, following retirement, he was finally able to settle down. Marco lived in Chicago for 25 years and was the President of the HOA. He loved watching the Cubs and attended many games. Marco had a huge circle of friends and was very good at keeping in touch with everyone.

Marco is survived by his son, Jason (Katie) La Cava and his grandson, Ethan.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Greg La Cava.

A private visitation and service will be held at Hamilton’s Southtown. Marco will be laid to rest with military honors at Glendale Cemetery.
