Carlos loved 70’s rock, and through most of high school he wore his blonde hair long like a 70’s rocker. He loved 70’s muscle cars and tinkering with his classic van. More than anything Carlos loved his mother. He was always respectful. He had a gentle but quick sense of humor. Carlos seemed to believe it was his duty to cheer up those around him. Although average height and medium build, Carlos was a spiritual giant. He cared about his friends and was always concerned about encouraging his friends to be better people. Carlos had a strong faith in God, an appreciation for this country, and our liberty. He also liked the idea of serving his country, giving something back, so Carlos enlisted in the Marines. He cheerfully worked hard at any task before him. He was quick to smile and make a joke, even if it was about himself. This attitude was contagious. His marine buddies loved him for this. He developed an unbreakable bond with his “band of brothers”. He loved those around him more than himself.
