Eustaquio ‘Taco’ Mateo

Excelsa Gardens is mourning the loss of one of our most beloved employees. Eustaquio ‘Taco’ Mateo. Taco worked at Excelsa Gardens for 20 years. During those years, Taco was Mark’s right-hand man. He was a jack of all trades when it came to the nursery, from growing plants to managing his team with charisma. Taco is survived by his wife and two sons. All of us at Excelsa will miss him every day.

Rest in Peace Taco
