She got onto the bus while Margaret sat there eating her ice cream cone Carlos walked over to the bus window and asked "Can i get a lick?" and there his love life began. He was a professional welder and jack of all trades. he enjoyed every moment in life never looked at the negative and always followed his dreams. his life revolved around being with family and working 24/7 always doing anything he could to make sure everyone was taken care of he would give the shirt off his back to a stranger always nothing but kindness. he also enjoyed fishing, cooking, partying and being with his club. overall he was an amazing respectable lovable man imprinting on every person that had the pleasure to say they were in his life
