After moving to Cincinnati, OH in 1997, Carlos sought the American Dream. He was a successful entrepreneur as a General Construction Contractor. Carlos was united in holy matrimony to Angelica Espinoza on January 19, 2007. They enjoyed over 23 years of marital bliss. Family gatherings were some of his happiest moments. Carlos loved to dance and listen to music with his wife. He enjoyed taking road trips with his family and attending all of the sporting events of his boys. He thoroughly enjoyed fishing with his sons as well.
Carlos was a hard worker, a resilient man in the face of adversity, and a person who provided exemplary effort. He had an unassuming and disarming personality that could put anyone at ease. Everyone was Carlos’ friend. His sense of humor was second to none and he was a very compassionate man. He could find the silver lining to keep pushing forward in any situation. Carlos was so special and represented the good that we all need every day in our lives. We are proud to have been able to call Carlos our husband, father, brother, uncle, friend, and son.
