    Carlos was a very caring and wonderful man. Thank you for including my daughters when you would take your kids to eat. Thank you for my bonus daughter. You will truly be missed. Rest Peacefully

  • Carlos always welcomed me when coming into the EDR (employee dining room) with his bright smile at the Excalibur Hotel. He made great food and I enjoyed talking to him when making a breakfast burrito on the grill. Prayers for his family during this difficult time 🥲🤗🙏🏻💕
