Carlos Garro passed away peacefully, after a five year battle with cancer, surrounded by his family on November 19, 2015.
He was born in Santesteban, Navarra, Spain to Jose Garro and Silvia Iparraguirre. He lived with his parents and eight siblings until age 19 when he came to the United States to work. After many
years as a sheepherder, he moved to Bakersfield, lived with his uncle Mauricio Iparraguirre and started his gardening business.
Carlos enjoyed camping, fishing and hunting. He also loved cooking for his family and friends and especially looked forward to his Saturday lunches with friends.
Carlos is survived by his wife of thirty-nine years Margaret Garro, son Carlos (Charlie) Michael Garro, daughters Sandra Elaine Caudel (husband Brandon), Andrea Marie von Schriltz (husband Travis) and his
most precious grandchildren Sylvia Caudel and Michael Garro. He is also survived by his brothers Vicente and Modesto of Spain, Javier of Chino, Ca and sisters Esther, Amparo and Araceli of Spain as well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles from Spain and Argentina. Carlos is preceded in death by his parents, brothers Marcelino and Juan Jose, nephew Cain and uncles Mauricio and Paco Iparraguirre.
