Carmen the “CAR MAN” has lived a crazy ride of life and had many adventures. He was happy in a warm bed or under the stars. He really appreciated nature and all the little things there was in life.

Carmen always greeted you with a big smile. He was very humble and grateful of everything and anything. He was a good man. Really, a beautiful human being with a beautiful soul so warm and kind and full of life. He had a heart bigger then himself and that heart was a heart of gold.
