Having worked at USEPA in the Methodist Building for over 40 years, Jim and I got to know Carmen well over the years and so appreciated his dedication to the details of his job and his friendly personality! Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss.

I remember Carmen from when he was custodian at the Board of Trade Building. He loved classical music and especially his beloved Boston Pops and Arthur Fiedler. When he bought a record album that didn’t meet his high standards he would come in and sell it to my manager Stella. It brings a smile to my face just thinking of their transactions. Stella passed away November, 2009. Carmen was a very hard worker and a very nice man. My prayers are with you at this very sad time.
