He was one in a million and there is so much to say about Carlos. Very special to all of us. He cared about how we were feeling. Always made us feel comfortable. Always worried if mom & dad were ok. He enjoyed spending his free time at the Monterey beach relaxing reading a book or whale watching. He was very creative. He knew how to cook really good, "Especially Pasta" we loved his macaroni & cheese. His crab & shrimp feast would always be a fun time for all that attended.
Carlos considered himself to be Batman, and he was a Godfather to many nieces and nephews. They all practically called him Nino or Nono. He loved every minute of them saying it. They were his kids. He loved them all. They all looked up to him as well. Carlos enjoyed watching San Francisco Giants & the New England Patriots play. Carlos was fun to be around very kindhearted, compassionate, artistic, and very creative. Carlos will be deeply missed by all of us that knew him. There will be a hole in our hearts. Carlos has touched many lives in the short time he was here.
