Carlos De La Cruz

September 14, 1987 — June 28, 2023


Carlos De La Cruz, beloved husband, father, brother, son, and uncle passed away on June 28, 2023, in his hometown of Tucson, AZ. Born on September 14, 1987, in Tucson, Carlos lived a life full of laughter, adventure, and love.

Carlos was a skilled operator of heavy machinery and dedicated much of his career to doing tractor work for numerous individuals. His expertise in operating heavy machinery was not only impressive but also a testament to his hard work and determination. Carlos was self-taught in this field, showcasing his remarkable ability to learn and master new skills.

Beyond his professional accomplishments, Carlos's true fulfillment came from his family. His loving wife Daniella De La Cruz and their children Estrella and Hector were the source of immense pride and joy for Carlos. His devotion to his family knew no bounds; he would go above and beyond to ensure their happiness and wellbeing. Carlos's most significant accomplishment was the love he cultivated within his family.

Carlos had an infectious sense of humor that could brighten anyone's day. He had an extraordinary talent for making people laugh with his witty jokes and amusing stories. He shared these stories generously with those around him, leaving everyone in stitches. Carlos brought warmth into every room he entered with his cheerful disposition and the big smile that constantly adorned his face.

Adventurous by nature, Carlos enjoyed spending time outdoors engaging in activities such as ATV and dirt bike riding. Fishing was another hobby he cherished dearly. These pursuits allowed him to immerse himself in nature's serenity while creating lasting memories with loved ones.

In addition to being a handyman extraordinaire who could fix just about anything, Carlos was known for giving the best hugs. His warm embrace provided comfort during times of need and conveyed his deep affection for those around him. A natural host, Carlos organized legendary carne asadas that brought friends and family together under one roof, creating cherished memories that will be treasured forever.

Carlos's spontaneous spirit was unmatched, and he thrived on embracing the unknown. He had a zest for life that inspired others to step out of their comfort zones and embrace adventure. Whether it was embarking on an impromptu road trip or trying something new, Carlos radiated an enthusiasm that was contagious to all who knew him.

Carlos leaves behind a loving network of family and friends who will deeply miss his presence. His wife Daniella, children Estrella and Hector, brother Antonio, sisters Vanessa, Elizabeth, Ana, Violet, mother Candelaria Medina-Felix, and many nieces and nephews will carry his memory in their hearts forever.

A visitation service to celebrate Carlos's life will be held on July 7, 2023, at Martinez Funeral Chapels in Tucson. The visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. and conclude at 2:00 p.m., providing an opportunity for loved ones to pay their respects and share their fondest memories of Carlos.

Carlos De La Cruz may no longer physically grace our lives, but his legacy of laughter and love lives on within the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him. May we honor his memory by embracing life with the same joyous spirit he exemplified every day.
