As a lifelong resident of Grand Island, Carlos graduated from Grand Island Senior High. Before college he was employed by Parrella’s Car Dealership.
He continued his education and received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. From a young age Carlos was inspired to become a chiropractor from his Uncle Mike.

One in particular was Dr. Eric Benson.
While opening his own practice, RedZone Chiropractor in Grand Island, Carlos was employed by Hansen International and Prairie Pride Brewing Co. He fulfilled his life purpose of helping others not only through his work as a chiropractor with his magical hands, but also being there for his family. He encouraged and shared his love of celebrating every accomplishment.
He was a devoted Husker football fan and Pittsburgh Steelers fan. He also enjoyed a quality craft beer and helping family stay up to date on the latest electronics. He shared his passion for boxing and MMA with his nephews and loved to play pool with Bre. Carlos was talented and knowledgeable at any topic he put his mind to. He was a wonderful cook, loved his family, and knew how to have a good party. His world revolved around his family and friends.
His memory is cherished by his parents, Carlos Sr. and Diana of Grand Island; a sister and brother-in-law, Melissa and AJ Schuldt of Grand Island; two nephews, Jaxson and Jordan; his grandma, Jennie Casarez; and his fiancée, Bre Sinsel of Grand Island; along with numerous friends and extended family.
