Carlos was a graduate of Vigor High School, and proudly served our country in the US Marine Reserves for four years. He worked most of his adult life as a salesman for RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company and Zep Manufacturing Company.
Carlos had three beautiful daughters, Carla, Kelly, and Holly, and he always loved spending time with them anytime he could.

Surviving Carlos are his daughters, Carla (Todd) Myers and Kelly Robbins; grandchildren, Kristi (Brandon) Bellew and Rucker Beasley; great grandchildren, James Brandon Bellew and Madi Grace Bellew; former wife, Patricia Robbins; his brother, Kenneth (Ellen) Robbins; and two nephews, James Robbins, and Evan Robbins.
