Carlo was taken from us Sunday June 18th, 2017 in a senseless act of gun violence. He leaves behind a beautiful 2 1/2 year old daughter whom he repeatedly referred to as his "reason to keep fighting".   Unfortunately, his fight was ended too soon.

All who knew him would agree his smile and personality lit up every room he was in. You were immediately attracted to his infectious laughter and warm spirit, but were drawn in by his values and aspirations. He dedicated his life to helping the youth and bettering his community; working for after school programs, coaching high school football and soccer,  as an advisor, mentor and PE teacher at his alma mater, Skyline High School.  

He truly was, one of the good ones.. a man who would give the shirt off his back to help someone in need without expecting anything in return.  There are simply not enough words to describe his light, but anyone who had the priveldge of knowing him or being in his presence, can attest to it.  

 An innocent child has lost the opportunity to grow up with her father and Carlo has been stripped of the opportunity to witness his little girl continue to blossom throughout life.  A family has lost their beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew and cousin. Friends and co-workers are mourning the loss of one of their own.  And so many youth have lost a true role model that was advocating so hard against the very thing that took him from us. 

Our hearts are heavy with this tragic and unexpected loss.  Although there is nothing that will bring him back, we are hopeful justice will be served.  This page is set up in an effort to alleviate some of the financial strain that comes with losing a loved one as well as to help provide his daughter, Lesieli, with anything she may need moving forward. 

His memory will live on in all of us and the stories we continue to share. 

"Its hard to forget someone who gave us so much to remember"  

Rest in Peace, Carlo.
