November 3, 1938 - January 16, 2016
On January 15, 2016, at Kindred Hospital in Ontario, Jesus wrapped His loving arms around Carlos Hernandez, our beloved father and Lito and took him home. Carlos was in the presence of his family and was never alone the two months he was ill. He was 77 years old. On November 3, 1938 Carlos was born the seventh of nine children to Miguel and Paula Hernandez, in Mexico City, Mexico. He moved to Fresno in 1953 and then to Victorville in 1958 where he met the love of his life Mary Padilla. They married in 1959 and had four children. For thirty years he worked as an electrician for Kaiser Cement in Lucerne Valley. Carlos was very active in the community and a member of St. Joan of Arc Church. He was a founding member of the charitable non-profit organization “Los Dorados Del Valle”. He spent his retirement years working at the ranch and visiting with his 11 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. He would always bring them McDonalds and that would be followed with wet scratchy kisses. Carlos loved God, his family and his friends but after that it was all about the Dodgers. Christ truly blessed a lot of lives through Carlos with his unconditional love and generosity. He will be truly missed but we know we will all see him again one day. Carlos is survived by his wife, Mary, of Victorville; daughter Gina Clark and husband Jeff of Apple Valley; daughter Becky Gutierrez and husband Edward of Hesperia; son Carlos II of Victorville; son Steven of Apple Valley; sisters Belia Pacheco of ElPaso, TX; Michaela Vargas of Victorville; Virginia Yee of San Diego; brothers Pancho and wife Annie of Fresno; Miguel of Victorville and Genaro and wife Maria of Ensenada, Mexico; Grandchildren Marcos Clark and wife Mindy; Domonique Potter and husband Lee; Vincent, Erik and Matthew Gutierrez ; Carlos Hernandez III and wife Angelica; Adrian Hernandez and wife Karen; Anjelika, Jesse and Marisa Hernandez and Imari Guerero; great grandchildren Nicole and Dominick Hernandez; Matix Gutierrez; Broc and Hailey Potter; Lea and Ariel Gutierrez; Boston, Abbi and Hudson Clark; Troy and Aubri Hernandez; and two on the way. He also has many nephews, nieces, cousins, brothers and sisters in-law. Services will be at St. Joan of Arc Church Tuesday January 26th. Rosary to start at 9:00 a.m. and mass to follow. Interment will be at Victor Valley Memorial Park after mass.
