Carlos Ramos, 67, passed away on Thursday, March 18th. Carlos was born and raised in Chalatenango, El Salvador. At a young age, he moved to San Salvador where he earned a degree in business administration from Universidad Nacional de El Salvador. He worked as an accountant for 15 years before moving to the United States at the age of 34. Carlos and Mercedes raised their two sons Henry and Marvin in Cambridge, MA where they lived for several years before settling into their forever home in Everett, MA.
Carlos enjoyed meeting people from all walks of life during his 30 years working at Durgin Park restaurant in Fanueil Hall. One of his most memorable moments was meeting a gentleman that would help him achieve his dream of watching a Barcelona FC soccer game at the Camp Nou Stadium in Barcelona, Spain. He was a soccer fanatic who enjoyed watching his favorite two teams play: Barcelona FC of Spain and Alianza FC of El Salvador.
Carlos could pick up a good conversation with anyone. He enjoyed meeting new people and loved sharing how proud he was of his sons. Carlos loved staying active, he enjoyed bike riding, walking, and running six miles every day regardless of the weather.
In 2019, Carlos and Mercedes decided to retire and focus more on enjoying life together. They enjoyed traveling and spending time with their sons and four grandchildren - who lovingly referred to him as “Papa Carlos”. He especially enjoyed birthday celebrations and was always the life of the party. He was always happy, you would always see him with a huge smile on his face. Carlos had the kindest heart.
