Carlos was a loving, gentle soul. He epitomized what a “gentleman” was, and never wavered from that. One of his greatest gifts was bringing a quiet contentedness to our family. He thoroughly appreciated the blessings in his life, and was a wonderful example to anyone who knew him. He and Karleen shared a very special love, throughout every minute of their marriage. We feel so blessed to have had him in our lives.

I was fortunate to have known Carlos since I was a little girl, as his daughter, Elizabeth, and I became best friends in Venezuela in 8th grade. He was always warm, welcoming and had a big smile. Elizabeth and I were able to stay in close contact even after our families moved away from each other in part because Carlos was always willing to make the effort to drive to bring the two of us together. I was also welcomed to spend many a Thanksgiving during college at their home. I have wonderful memories of my time spent with Elizabeth's family, and will miss Carlos' big hugs and happy smiles. My deepest condolences and prayers for the whole family.

I will miss my dear Uncle Carlos. I cherished the many Monday dinners I had the privilege to share with him and Aunt Karleen as I was finding my way in my career and life. I will never comprehend the many ways it impacted me, and many ways I probably didn't even realize it was impacting me, but I know it led to many of the blessings I have found in my life. I too was blessed with the many hours car ride where he eloquently shared stories of his life. When I think of how he always carried himself and conducted himself - with grace, respect, patience, humility and love - it can't help but rub off on you. I am grateful to know such a man and call him my Uncle.

I have many fond memories of Uncle Carlos. From his wonderful belly laugh to his genuine care and interest in others and the chivalrous and proper way he conducted himself, he was a positive presence in whatever way you encountered him. Perhaps my most profound memory might be our drive back from a fishing trip where over a couple hours, he shared his life story of how he came to America. This just increased the respect and admiration I had for him. I’m grateful for the love and happiness he gave to my Aunt Karleen and consequently, the joy he brought the rest of our family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Jim and I really enjoyed Carlos' company. He and Jim had much in common, which was great for Jim who is a bit shy, socially. God speed, Carlos, see you soon, maybe!

Carlos was a a kind, loving man. He always greeted you with a warm smile and generous spirit. We will fondly remember his love of music, flying and writing. And most of all, his wife, Karleen, and children and grands. We loved hearing his stories. He was a quiet presence in the room whenever our family gathered, taking delight in the conversations around him. Our lives were blessed and enriched by knowing this gentle man and he will surely be missed.
