He traveled to the USA when he was a small child with his older siblings in 1968 to be with his parents in Manchester, N.H. He attended elementary school in Manchester and later moved to Framingham, MA finally settling in Natick, Ma. He was a “1976 Bicentennial Year” graduate of Natick High School. Carlos later served his country in the Army. He began a long career with Hostess Continental Bakery until the division moved to New Hampshire. He later worked and retired from Certainteed in Westwood after he became ill. Carlos loved sports through out his life. In his younger years he played a variety of sports but his favorite sport to play was basketball. During his adulthood he played slow pitch softball for many years. He also loved his “Pittsburgh Steelers” even in when the rest of the family was cheering on the Patriots! Carlos was a gentle giant that everyone loved. He would do anything for anyone in need. He would brighten up a room the minute he entered with his funny quotes and sense of humor. During his single years, if anyone was looking for Carlos he could be found dancing at the 50’s Club in Marlbough, MA.

The biggest dream for Carlos was to be married and have a family one day. Then one day he found the love of his life, Frances. He was a devoted husband, grandfather, stepfather and brother in law and person to everyone and anyone. He was so proud and so happy.
