He married Olga Barrera in 1961 in Piedras Niegras, Coahuila, Mexico. They were married for 55 years.
Carlos and his wife raised their children in Central Texas, most of that time in Lometa. Carlos was active in the community and in his church congregation.
He was in the ministry of Permanent Deacon of the Catholic Church in the Austin Diocese. He served for St. Mary Catholic Church in Lampasas and Good Shepherd Church in Lometa. He also assisted many other churches throughout the diocese and traveled where the Lord called him. He worked many jobs in Lometa, finally retiring from the Lometa Independent School District where he received the “Hornet Pride” award for his work and support of the school.
