Carlos Gutierrez Presente! We lost a warrior yesterday. He was a great homey, a solid comrade, a loving father, son and partner. He grew up in the Mission Barrio. He was raised by the movement. He loved his hood, he got in trouble in his hood, he came back to his hood.
On a mission he rolled up his sleeves, opened his heart, and honed his organizing game. A mentor to many young people, a mentee to many elders and veteranos. He surrounded himself with solid peoples, got involved in righteous causes, and with a true heart and a humble demeanor he threw down like a fierce guerrero. He was a real one.. “with light in his heart and the strength of a lion”.
I will sorely miss you carnalito. Light and blessings on your journey. Healing and strength to all of us that loved you.
A life celebration for Carlos will be held at the Duggan Funeral Home Fri/20, 3pm-7pm.
