Mi Tio Carlos. I enjoyed our conversations every now and then I'd call him just to talk to him and ask how he's doing. He never said he felt sick or tired. He was always good. He called me the pelionera because I wouldn't let him dance with some woman in a red VERY short dress. RIP tio, I will miss our convos tio. 💔

Carlos has always been a special person in our lives. He married Viola and I was their flower girl. I used to be so jealous because I wanted Viola for myself only. Viola and her mom Eugenia whom I called Ina raised me till I was 6. It was then that he became an important part of our lives. He was my parents Compadre of several of my brothers/sisters and myself. My parents had many special moments with Carlos and Viola when they would go out dancing. They were the best of compadres. I eventually became his Comadre too Viola would have it no other way. I respected him and was always happy to run into him. The Izaguirre family will always remember you. Con mucho amor. Cachi

Carlos was our oldest sons Godfather. We missed being in the Valley as we moved to Washington. Our memories of him was his love for his three girls and son. He loved fishing.

May his family always remember the love he shared with them. May God almighty grant him eternal piece. You will always be in our hearts

What I‘ll always remember about Tio Carlos was how warm he was. His smile was so contagious and his hugs felt like home. That’s a feeling I’ll never forget. ❤️

As a kid growing up knowing my Tio Carlos I loved to see Tio and my dad Ruben Palacios get dressed up in their Tejano suits and cowboy boots ready to celebrate and dance. I once told Tio Carlos I wanted to be like him when I grow Tio Carlos laughed and told me Heaven forbid Mijo (Sixto) you will always be in trouble. Always my Tio Carlos in my heart.

My Tio always had a hug and smile ready for us. Always very protective of his family. He was spoiled by his sisters. We all loved him so much and he loved us all back. He took good care of my Welita, his sister Maria, when my Welito passed away. Thank you Tio, for all your love.
You will be missed.
We love you Tio.

Tio Carlos is and will always be one of kind. Tio taught me (when I was a kid) how to talk back to my mom and not get into trouble, until I was in the house. Mom's never forget.
