Uncle Carlos was always so kind, with a warm smile that made you feel comforted. I still remember how he helped me settle in at the Methodist hospital when I was a volunteer blue bird in high school. My sympathies to all the family.

Carlos was a generous soul. He welcomed me into the Rosary Guild with such kindness. He loved showing us his family pictures of his beautiful wife, and his cute granddaughters.
I remember how he quietly pulled me aside to tell me very gently, Mija you’re burning the Rosary knots to close. Let me show you how to let the flame melt the wax cord, so it doesn’t burn. I still can’t quite get them as nice as his were, but I thank him for reminding me there’s a right way to melting cords. I’ll never forget how shocked he was when we were talking one day about how my family was from Long Beach, California. He said I used to live in Long Beach years ago. He said he worked at Boeing factory. Well my husband worked as a Longshoreman and so he was happy that he knew what a Longshoreman was. He was a a great man and a very good teacher. Rest In Peace Carlitos! Love Athena Bartholomew

Carlos was a faithful and very active member of the Prince of Peace Rosary Guild. He managed the supply chain for the members. He always made sure there was always plenty of crucifixes, centers, beads and cord on hand for making mission rosaries. He also packaged the assembled rosaries and kept track of the total number of mission rosaries that the Guild made.
Once a month we also celebrated birthdays of Guild members with a pot luck meal and we always looked forward to Carlos’ pies. Carlos was a very humble man, he was loved by all and he will be deeply missed. “Well done, good and faithful servant!”
