Biologically Ernesto is my grandfather. However, he raised me and cared for me as his daughter and I love him as a father. This statement speaks to the man my father was. At the peak of expanding and creating his business El Compadre, he and my mama Marina took in my brother and me. Words can not express how much he is missed. I am so thankful for his tough love and guidance throughout my life. He helped so many people and truly left a positive impact on many throughout his time here on Earth. He was such a natural leader and with Marina's support and encouragement, he paved the path to success time after time again. He wasn't only a dreamer but a doer, he turned so many dreams into reality. He worked hard and got things done. He was and continues to be such an inspiration in my life and others. I am eternally grateful for my time with him, cancer could have taken him in 2004 when I was a young 18 years old. He was such a fighter, he knew he was still needed and he fought for his loved ones. My dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2013 I believe and still fought to be here with his family all these years. Cancer and treatment took a toll on his body but he didn't let that break his spirit, he was a true fighter and loved his family dearly. I'm so thankful for all he has taught me in this life. I will cherish all the memories and life lessons and pass them along to my children. Forever missed, never forgotten! I love you dad!

I been thinking how much I miss my older brother. He was always kind and caring.
My best memory was a time when he allowed me to take his new car for a ride around the neighborhood In Oxnard CA.
It was a Classic Mustang one of the most popular cars during those days. It was a very special time to be entrusted with his new car. Besides I was just learning how to drive. 🚘

Always able to express himself well, Noe possessed strong interpersonal skills. He was optimistic in his outlook on life and was able at all times to be open and direct in his communication. Armed with a great wit, Noe was raised to be accepting of others and to implement a strong personal work ethic.

      Blessed with a balanced attitude, Noe was able to relate well with others. His occasional role as family mediator gave him the opportunity to ease tense situations when they occurred. Noe was raised with ten siblings. He had five brother Juan, Saturnino, Samuel, Jose Luis, Gaspar and five sisters Victoria, Ernestina, Lupe, Martha, Juanita.

      Noe enjoyed his leisure time by taking part in various hobbies. He had something of an artistic flair in many of the things that he did. He put this creativity toward all of his pastimes. His favorite pursuits were gardening, crafting around the house and in his shop. He was content to enjoy his hobbies alone but was also willing to share his interests with others.

He was always able to provide amusing repartee to his friends and acquaintances, offering a seemingly endless supply of quips, anecdotes, jokes and stories. If Noe had a theme song written about him, it might well have been “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” He enjoyed his life and the experience of living it. This is how everyone will remember Ernesto Carrillo.
