Obituary Condolences

Carlos Samuel Christian November 16, 1934 - January 16, 2014 Carlos Samuel Christian, Sr., 79, passed away peacefully at home in Nice, CA. Carlos was born in Mexico City, Mexico, and moved to Lakeport as a young man. He gained citizenship through enlisting in the armed forces. Upon honorable discharge he returned to Lakeport, purchased and leased pear orchards, following proprietorship of a restaurant, gas station and a farm labor contracting business. Carlos loved laughing, socializing, tinkering in his shop, gardening, napping in hammocks, canning, Calvin & Hobbs, nature, teaching his children chess, reading, and morning coffee at The Mecca. His love of cooking was shown as he sang and danced in the kitchen. Carlos had a whistle that could be heard over 50 acres and was never replicated. During his retirement years he spent his days treasure hunting in the mountains of central Mexico. His presence will be missed. Beloved brother, father, uncle, grandfather and great-grandfather; "Papa", "El Gallo", "Viejo" is survived by his brother, Jose (Gail); sons, Carlos Jr. (Yunhee), Alfonso, and Paul (Ann) Neumann; daughters, Sonja Safrans, Diana (Mark) Johnson, and Corina (Terry) Hull; and 14 grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, all of California.
