Carlos was born in Cavalier, ND on October 19, 1993 and is the son of Martin and Rosa Martinez. During his childhood, his family worked in the agricultural industry and migrated between North Dakota and Texas. Carlos was well known for his work ethic and was always willing to help anyone who crossed his path.

Carlos was an individual who knew the importance of family and cherished spending quality time with them. Carlos was a strong believer in Christ, and he regularly attended Bethel Church in Fargo. He slept with his Bible next to his bedside and his strong faith was displayed through his humility and selflessness.
