Carlos Espinosa

July 26, 1941 — July 17, 2022

Carlos V. Espinosa, born in Guanabacoa, Cuba on July 26, 1941, passed away July 17, 2022, at Springhill Memorial Hospital. He was 80 years old. His first-born son, Carlitos, as he is affectionally known, was by his side. Carlos called Mobile his home after coming from Cuba in 1971 by way of Spain and California. The life experiences he shared with people should be in a history book. Carlos wanted to make sure people knew what the United States meant to him and the opportunities that American citizens have and should be appreciated. The day he became an American citizen was one of the proudest days in his life. His life was dedicated to making sure his family was taken care of and safe. When he retired from his job as Vice President of Ocal, an electrical conduit manufacturing facility which originated in Van Nuys, California he returned to his roots of farming and working with his favorite type of animal-goats at the family farm in Mobile. His grand children were his greatest love and enjoyed seeing them when they visited him.
Carlos is survived by Lucrecia Espinosa and were together for 63 years. He was preceded in death by both his parents Secundino and Juana Espinosa. Carlos' children will cherish the memories they have of their father. Carlos Rafael, the oldest, known as Carlitos to many, Orestes Jose, the middle son, and Barbara, the youngest daughter will miss their father.
The family will receive friends for visitation from 9:00-10:00 on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 at Mobile Memorial Gardens on Three Notch Road in Mobile, Alabama. Mass and graveside services will follow afterwards.


Carlos V. Espinosa, nacido en Guanabacoa, Cuba el 26 de Julio de 1941, falleció el 17 de Julio de 2022 en Springhill Memorial Hospital. Tenía 80 años. A su lado estuvo su primogénito, Carlitos, como se le conoce cariñosamente. Carlos llamó a Mobile su hogar después de venir de Cuba en 1971 a través de España y California. Las experiencias de vida que compartió con la gente deberían estar en un libro de historia. Carlos quería asegurarse de que la gente supiera lo que Estados Unidos significaba para él y las oportunidades que los ciudadanos estadounidenses tienen y deben ser apreciadas. El día en que se convirtió en ciudadano estadounidense fue uno de los días de mayor orgullo en su vida. Dedicó su vida a asegurarse de que su familia estuviera bien cuidada y segura. Cuando se retiró de su trabajo como vicepresidente de Ocal, una planta de fabricación de conductos eléctricos que se originó en Van Nuys, California, volvió a sus raíces de agricultura y trabajó con su tipo favorito de animales: cabras en la granja familiar en Mobile. Sus nietos eran su mayor amor y disfrutaba verlos cuando lo visitaban.

A Carlos le sobrevive Lucrecia Espinosa y estuvieron juntos durante 63 años. Le precedieron en la muerte sus padres Secundino y Juana Espinosa. Los hijos de Carlos apreciarán los recuerdos que tienen de su padre. Carlos Rafael, el mayor, conocido como Carlitos por muchos, Orestes José, el hijo del medio, y Bárbara, la hija menor, extrañarán a su padre.
