Carlos was born February 23 1969 in the Bronx he is the baby out of all his older brothers and sisters of 6. He has lived a very rough life and has battled many things that he has overcome but some things are too hard. He loved his family and was very particular about our appearances. He would always play music and dance with everyone, he loved to cook and was very good at it. Everybody loved his dancing, he loved animals and basketball even though he had arthritis he would still play. He would go shopping for all of us and surprise us with all types of things. He would play music outside and have everyone together dancing and singing.
He always wanted to be a mentor and an inspirational speaker. Before he passed he was trying to open a center for people who needed help with life problems. He was always very understanding and saw the good in everything and everyone. He would rescue stray dogs and nurse back to good health. Whenever someone was going through a rough time he would give great advice and help find ways to overcome these rough times. Carlos loved to make special dishes and share them with everyone who would try it. Carlos could bring out the sun on a rainy day.
One of his quotes was “don't wait until its too late to change to want to be a different person because when you're gone there's no second chances' '. He would also say live forgive for you and be the best you you can be at all times no matter what. He will be very missed and loved forever.
