During their 60 years of marriage, Carlos and Loretta were blessed with two sons, Victor (Patricia), Emmanuel (deceased), Grandsons Zachary and Maximilian, Granddaughter Jessica McCollum (Ray), Great Granddaughter Emma Kate McCollum and Grandnephew Eddie Martinez. Some of the things Carlos loved were fishing, old Hollywood movies, Westerns and spending time with his family. Carlos had a great sense of humor.

I've finished life's chores assigned to me,
So put me on a boat headed out to sea.
Please send along my fishing pole
For I've been invited to the fishin' hole.
Where every day is a day to fish,
To fill your heart with every wish.
Don't worry, or feel sad for me,
I'm fishin' with the Master of the sea.
We will miss each other for awhile,
But you will come and bring your smile.
That won't be long you will see,
Till we're together you and me.
To all of those that think of me,
Be happy as I go out to sea.
If others wonder why I'm missin'
Just tell 'em I've gone fishin'
